Thanks for the tip on trying more cores than I actually have. I never thought of that, and was also having 1080p files running out of buffer, without the cpus actually being maxed out.

I'll be damned, setting my PMS to 4 cores fixes my buffer starvation on 1080p MKVs being transcoded with external subtitles! When set to the proper number (2), my dual cores never read 100% CPU utilization. When set to 4 cores, the increase in threads makes my CPUs max out, and my machine (a 2.4ghz Core Duo 2 Mac Mini) is just (and I mean *just*) able to keep up with the transcoding.

Try it out!
