Ahh, I see (from this http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-10.html
). When I get home I'll check what is set up currently.

Since LiveTV is working great (can't be a processor issue), what would
be the drawback of setting everything to record that way? Is it a
disk-space-saving thing?

When I say that LiveTV works great, the replay and fast-forwarding
does. I do have another problem when I change aspect ratio to
something other than 4:3 zoom or 16:9 zoom. Then I get horizontal line
distortion on fast-moving video. Think they are related?
