   Can you point me toward where I change this setting in 0.21? I've
been looking but I cannot find it. Since this is the Playack OSD
that's failing I've been looking there with no success. Under Playback
I am not finding BOB or anything like that. There are the playback
profiles which is currently set to CPU+.

   Note that if it matters my data files are basically raw,
non-transcoded so I'm using 2GB/hour.

Thanks in advance,
