I have, repeatedly.  I starting digging into my.cnf after the "mythfilldatabase runs so slow on ext4" thread a while back where it was suggested (by you, I believe) that proper tuning of MySQL was far more prudent than removing ext4 barriers.  Running either mysqltuningprimer or tuning-primer (another, more in depth script) comes up essentially clean.

That's good to know, but I agree it's probably not cause for alarm.  The issues I'm seeing with multiple recordings appear to be more an I/O on the recordings drives issues...again, which isn't present under 0.24.

Having said that, I think I accidentally hijacked this thread.  For some reason when I posted my last response, I though this was in the "Bad Recordings" thread.  Though, this is an actual 0.25 issue that seems to be fairly common with 0.25 / HDHR users.
