[MPlayer-users] Funny sound RFI when encoding from PCTV

my concern doesn't fall into the category I've seen this month (over-revving
the line-in) but I hear a funny CPU revving sound when encoding live TV from
the Pinnacle PCTV Pro.
Would it be possible that mencoder collects an amount of data and then
compresses it at fast as possible. Before I've tried to find the real cause
of the interference a 'nice -10' approach sometimes helps. The idea was to
make mencoder run as smoothly as possible without smothering it completely.
I care about the well-being of Mplayer. Any other mencoder sessions are free
of any visible/audible interference whatsoever. It's a shame I can't grab
the same TV program twice to repeat the process, but I'm certain what a CPU
sounds like (as in the 'Contact' movie where they try to decode the signal).
I'm trained as an electrician but don't have a clue how to tidy out the the
Linux funker for meg!
