I'm happy with just a modest power saving.
Put in context, on my system, 3Wh ~ 25 mins SD content transcoding to
H264/AAC = 30-40% disk space reduction with no noticeable loss of
quality. So ~70Wh saving / day pays for ongoing SD recording
compression and multi-TB historical library compression in about 3
months. I free up a 1TB or so of RAID :-)
