In my case not much.  It is a dedicated FE & BE.  It's happened at 
different times of the day.  Cpufreq is using the ondemand module with 
sensitivity to upscale set at 31.  Top is usually showing about 5% used 
@ 1000Mhz for the backend with some blips of the hdpvr_buffer kernel 
task using 1% of the cpu.  If the frontend is running with VDPAU, I 
usually see another 3-5% usage there if it's displaying a recording.
I've turned off all other services that I can.  It's running just udevd, 
lircd, watchdog rsyslogd, acpid, sshd, irexec, wpa_supplicant and 
dhclient for it's wireless adapter, ntpd, smartd and of course mysql. 
It also has PVR250 and a PVR1250 card.  I'm trying to transition off the 
250 to the HDPVR.  That's not in use when the HDPVR is.  The 1250 is 
usually only busy in the evenings for OTA recording.  It has 2GB of RAM, 
so I don't see alot of swapping.
