Don't worry, you will be OK. Throttling occurs under heavy load such as decoding. Even then it doesn't stop working but runs a little bit slower. Nothing to worry too much about, unless you use time-critical applications such as video streaming.
There is a comparably easy solution, which requires a little bit of tinkering by putting a heatsink on the bottom of the case.
Can you confirm that you have been watching 1080i sources? Throttling does not occur on SD channels, very slightly on 720p (DVD) and 1080p HD but heavily on 1080i. It might also be that the internal heat pad on mine was not correctly mounted during assembly.Not had any over heating issues with mine.
That's not the question. What kind of video source have you been using with the kids? SD TV, HD TV or DVD? All of these sources will play quite well without visible chopping. The only indicator might be the number of dropped frames, which you can display with Shift-1. It's on 1080i only that you would really notice the problem. BBC HD will broadcast either in 1080p or 1080i - this seems to vary depending on the content.All upscaled to 1080p.
