No, unfortunately it was a stupid mistake on my part.  I had a typo in
the script for my mythtvEvents for playback, and it was not throttling
up the cpu.  I found and fixed it.  Now I'm all happy again!

If I can figure out how to create a wiki page I will post my setup
with cgroups and mythtv event handling for others who have machines
like this.  As much horsepower as it may have, I found it only takes a
small hiccup to throw a video off  :)
