Thanks for the reply! I'll definitely have to overclock and test the results. I had only ever tried Xbian up til a few days ago so this is new, good information to me.

Indeed this is one of the drawbacks of handbrake / H.264 and trying to achieve the same quality as the original bluray -- you end up with a file size and bitrate that is larger than the original. I've tried a lot of sampling with different quality settings and can't get over the loss of quality when set to 18 or 16. I could probably live with 14 but I can still see a difference. 12 is getting very close, but if I'm going to do 12 I might as well do 10 because 10 was the point at which I could no longer see any differences between the encoded and the original.

Hopefully when pcm passthrough is setup it'll take some of the load off the pi because it won't have to deal with the massive 5.1/6.1/7.1 uncompressed pcm.
