Well no... not really. Low priority mode causes mythcommflag to insert
sleeps into its loop, so it purposefully only uses a fraction of the
CPU. It is intended for use on systems where simply running 'nice' is
not sufficient to prevent it from breaking recordings. Changing it to
medium simply means mythcommflag will now run as fast as the CPU allows.
