Though I don't think anyone is talking about encoding HD video from
scratch.  The only "encoding" that I ever do is when I burn an HD show to
DVD, and that is not time sensitive.  Otherwise, recording HD shows via QAM
or OTA take little to no horsepower.  The typical thing that takes power on
a real-time basis is decoding (for playback or commercial detection).  A
decoding test should be readily scriptable, and very useful.
