A quick test of an hour long 1080i recording on a 3.3GHz Phenom II takes
388 seconds and 686 seconds of CPU time. You can easily handle four
recordings at a time. The issue is that making so you can run four
real-time commflags also means you will run four tasks all the time. As
explained, it's an optimization of one case over the other.
