Much better here as well.  I was typically seeing long pauses every time
mythbackend started and/or stopped a recording.  I frequently had to
back up a few seconds to be able to understand the dialog.

After the upgrade, I was watching for a few hours on Wednesday evening.
It was a very busy night for recording, with multiple recordings going
on in the background while I was watching.  I didn't notices any pauses
in playback, though I did notice one instance where playback slowed down
for about a second.
