Meaning users with multiple lineups, trying to run backends on old P3s,
Atoms, or ARMs might not want to use it.

The issue is that the way it is currently set up, it flushes all the
guide data out of the database, and the repopulates it from scratch. If
you try to start a recording as this occurs, you may have problems. The
slower your processor and disk, and more and larger lineups you have to
process, the more likely you are to run into a problem.
