I do exactly this, because the fan on our frontend/backend is loud
enough to be distracting when transcoding HD recordings during prime
time.  (And WAF dictates that we want to watch TV then.)

Myth starts processing job 2 at 19:49, and will finish this job.  The
next one won't execute until exactly 23:10, and the machine starts
churning throughout the night...
