There should be no problem. You can specify the directory, where the
livebuffer should be written to, with option -b.
The LiveBufferSize should be a few MB smaller than the size of the
ramdisk (because of index.vdr and the 001.vdr gets a little bit larger
than LiveBufferSize) and 'Keep paused LiveBuffer" should be no.
