MCEBuddy 2.3.15, MP4 Performance Results; Regex and Multiple PCs

MCEBuddy on my HTPC Windows 7 - Media center PC has been converting TV Shows and my Haswell Server box does Movies. I want to make this easy to expand to 3 PCs. More efficient for a varying different recording input would be to have a list of the files in MCEBuddy's queue (the primary box) and then delegate the next file in line to be converted a remote PC and remove it its local queue.

I've searched and read the discussions on multi-PC processing but I'm curious how other users handle a heavy workload of MCEbuddy converting. What regex expression would you use to split file processing to multiple PCs?
PC #1: [^a-m]
PC #2: [^n-z]

Performance Example:

Amish Grace Lifetime Movie Network (small US movie) 2hr: 04m: 58s, 1080x1920, FPS 29.97, Audio AC3, 6 channel; WTV file, 11GB 1080x1920 MP2 Source recorded from WMC

MCEBuddy 2.3.15 (Beta, Donator)
__MP4 Defaults (Normal/High Quality), Comskip donator
Intel Haswell 3.4Ghz 4 Cores (e3-1240 ~= i5-4670), Spinning WD RED HD, Win7-ESXI

Updated Benchmarks for MCEbuddy MP4-Normal and MP4-High Quality. Anyone else care to share benchmarks for a 2hr movie?

Nice work!

This is exactly what I need to accomplish. Are there any instructions on how to accomplish "multi-pc processing" anywhere? I don't seem to be able to find anything searching by this term. Thanks!
