Blu-Ray Player Update

I wrote a couple of days ago about a Blu-Ray player that I built, mostly using parts around the house.

I took a little time the other day, and underclocked the CPU down from a 2.4Ghz to 1.2Ghz, while dropping the voltage.  I really didn't think I'd need that much computing horsepower to play movies.  

I was right.

The system just finished playing "Ironman" (again), while I was studying (well, playing around with photographs).  The CPU temp peaked at 29 degrees, and playback was 100% stable the entire way through.  No twitters, snags, or bizarre audio.
