I doubt it, considering earlier in the test they used the same box to
record a stream from a cable box over firewire and the CPU usage was
around 8%.

It's definately a decoding issue, but considering the Mac video
drivers don't expose any kind of Hardware Accelleration on the video
card, all the decoding's being done in CPU, which ain't got the guts
to do it.
