Has transcoding gotten much worse lately?

I NEVER got "your server isn't powerful enough" messages before the latest builds and now I get them ALL THE TIME.

    Yep... Between transcoding and direct streaming, my Nvidia shield is a paperweight.

    I am also having a lot of problems with the shield, I am also on 5.2. I cannot stream anything from plex cloud. If I use a ipad or stream/cast through a PC the files work fine. Plex just sits there with the wheel spinning and never loads the video. This completely sucks.

    Man, I thought it was just me. I'm getting the 'not powerful enough' message often too. Wonder what in the heck they changed to do that?
