[mythtv-users] Playback problem -- random short pauses

I have had an experience (not a very long period of time) where there were
no interruptions while watching recordings. The main difference that I
could discern was no commflagging and no recordings taking place. To test
this theory (that there is too much other disk/CPU activity) I have modified
the backend to only run jobs from 2am to 10am (times when we never watch
TV). This will leave only other recordings as background tasks. I will
report back after several days of watching with the results.
I will also add (especially after reading other recent posts on
partitioning) that I have my database on a separate disk from recordings,
but my OS does share space with my recordings (as does the swap partition).
The OS and swap are RAID1 x 4 and my recordings are RAID5 on the same 4
spindles. I can certainly see the benefit of the DB on its own spindle.
Not sure I see the benefit of the OS being separate. I do have some
swapping going on, but it is very little ( currently I have 85kb swapped out
-- system has 4GB RAM).
Maybe someone else will educate me.
