I use NAS system to store VDR data. Speed of network between HTPC and NAS is
over 700 Mbit/s. However reading and writing to RAID5 is only 20MB/s at peak
and about 10MB/s average.
Normally everything is fine, but when there is one or more noad running,
reading/writing data to that same NAS. I start to get those

OK, I can stop using noad... But is there way to allocate "enought" memory to
ring buffer, so it would not suffer when noad is running?!? My machine have
3 Gigs of memory, so I could "allocate" even 1 Gig to that ring buffer.
