What I have done is lowered the priority to the streamdev-client in one room, and leaving the priority high in my main room. The main room RPI is powered by the TV USB port so with my programable remote I insert a 10 second delay between issuing the poweroff command to the rpi and powering off the TV (which removes power from the RPI). This seems to have resolved my contention issues.
