Not quite sure how that happens if there is no vide processing going on.
It's a great set up indeed. MB3 allows transcoding to many many devices. I mainly use WMC and Roku. Of course WMC direct plays and there is transcoding involved for Roku. Amazon Fire will eventually support it. The folks over at Mediabrowser have done some pretty incredible things.
