Set up two recordings, staggered by about 10 minutes.

Both videos spent about 9-10 minutes "building logo detection buffer" with
high CPU% in top. After that, about another 5-10 minutes "looking for
logo." When that finished, CPU% dropped to about 45%. Load started about
3.95 and settled down to about 1.25. It was flagging between 96 to 115 fps.

One recording was ATSC 1, 1080, the other a 480 subchannel.

Has anyone else noticed that many American channels are no longer
superimposing network bugs on the lower right. Nothing. When did that stop?

Also, I'm in mythtv 34. Should I be enabling the "experimental" commercial
detection features?
