Next time I'm fiddling around on that box I can try this.  Its my parents
machine and I don't get that much hands-on time on it.  TBH, since its
a frontend-only, it does most everything running at 50% speed without
problems, even HD.  I remember trying to adjust the thresholds, and found
a lot of "slop" in the settings, meaning changing a value to where you
would think it would trip and it still wouldn't...  I don't remember 
using ondemand very much, maybe that is better....
