Default idle CPU on XBMC

Whenever I am playing something on XBMC, it looks like the 4th core (CPU3) stays idle at 0%. This is seen via the CodecInfo overlay.

Granted, I don't have any BD rips, and the FireTV doesn't have any problems playing my media, but it's still a question mark.

Does this happen for anybody else?

When running high bitrate 720p or higher .mkv container video I see sporadic use of CPU3, on 1080p content its used fairly evenly with the other 3 cores..

in other words it works in XBMC (using all cores) your content is just not stressing it enough to fire it up :P
