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....
