Can I move the buffer in Windows Media Center to a different location?

I didn't know whether to post this question here or in the the Windows 7 category, so apologies if I got that wrong.

I'm using Windows 7 x64 (stored on a small Crucial M4 with several other hard drives at my disposal), Windows Media Center, and a Hauppage TV tuner and everything works great so far. When I'm watching live TV, WMC buffers as expected but it stores these buffered files on my boot drive in C:\Users\Public\Recorded TV\TempRec. With boot drive storage at a premium I was looking to move the several gigabytes that are sometimes stored in that location to a different drive or even just limit the size of the buffer (the highest I've seen it is 6GB). I cannot figure out how to do either of those things, though, so any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Inside WMC go to Settings -> TV -> Recorder -> Recorder Storage, set the Record on drive option.
