Memory Leak in SageTV Transcoder

Right now, the SageTVTranscoder.exe process is using about 500 MB of physical memory as it converts a video file. It starts off using about 40 MB. Looks like a memory leak to me.

I don't understand how you are recording true HBO-HD content with the specs you have listed. I would think it would not be available with clear QAM. It would also be 5c encrypted and possibly the no reocording or no copy flag would be set. Are you recording these analog?

Don't know if this is related, but I've seen the service's memory usage almost double (from 150-ish to nearly 270MB) and also drive the cpu to near 100%. Last time this happened the HD100 choked on playing a DVD from the hard drive. A couple of times it happened on recorded shows. The only way to get "control" back is to stop/start the service.

Edit: with an HD show paused it's sitting at 210MB. guess my issue is just getting stuck in the shows.
