HDSM Has An On/Off Switch?

After viewing the fascinating thru the looking glass picture of Mr E.Q., I stumbled upon the following tweet:

I'm sure every Avigilante knows about this screen, but do they all know that MaxImum Quality means no HDSM?

However if it really can toggle HDSM like that, then wouldn't an interesting transsaucing challenge be to run a small controlled test with one client and a few streams and measure the cpu/bandwidth before and after the switch gets flipped from Max thru to Low.

If its doing massive transcoding on the server then we should see quite a spike in cpu, no? Anyone have any suggestions of simple yet somewhat representative ACC config? Anyone have any predictions SWAGS (Honor system please) on what kind of hit the cpu might take in various scenarios?

Also is the HDSM 2.0 version of ACC out? If not does anyone have any Beta-sauce lying around?
