Hi All,

I've just started running tasks again for the past week or so after some time off. However, the estimated times for my ATI tasks seems to be way off. I get estimates of ~10 hours, but the tasks finish in ~10 minutes. This leads to me only getting about 6 ATI tasks at a time, which is only an hour worth of work. I'd rather have a larger buffer.

Do you think it will figure things out on its own? It doesn't seem to have gotten any better after a week.

Is there a setting I can manually change to get better estimates?

In case it is of use, here's some details about my setup:

Windows 7 x64
Intel Core i7 930
ATI Radeon HD 5850

I'm using Lunatics apps.
