Really?  The FE in question has a 2.4 GHz P4.  If I feed HD thru to the 
TV, it displays garbage.  Jumpy, torn, scrolling garbage image; sound is 
similar.  Do you know of a way to feed HD to a std def TV successfully?

Oh, do you mean transcoding the HD down to SD on the BE, and then 
passing it on to the FE?
