I have what appear to be the usual problems with live tv: stuttering
and slow program guide. The problem I was trying to solve with the
faster ringbuf writing area was the stuttering problem.  I've tried a
lot of the different suggestions that I've found but none of them have
really had any affect.  I was just trying some super crazy alternatives
that maybe no one has ever thought about.
