Hi Craig,

 From your download image I can tell you're running Mac OS X (not Linux) 
but, for the list's sake, can you let us know how much memory you got in 
both your 1.83 and 1.66 minis?  Also, given your statement regarding 
HDHomeRun - are you also using the Minis as a backend?

I suspect Myth is quite memory hungry and stuff is spooling off to VM.  After that, however, both are quite able to keep up with anything I record.  That includes a couple of 1080i channels that are using the full 19 Mbit stream.  IOW, I see no difference between stuff playing live via the TV's ATSC receiver v. shows that I've recorded with Myth.
