I have never tried commflagging on arm though, so unsure the CPU optimizations that are granted on x86 with all of it's extras.  I would definitely start with and add recordings one by one and watch the CPU, but it should have no issue just raw recording I would imagine.

I was going to turn off commflagging completely as I really done use it on my big backend where it’s on by default. For the RP3 it’s about data movement and I’d expect mythtv backend to be about the same as tvheadend on bus bandwidth
