Thanks (slapping forehead with hand).  I completely forgot that my
upstream is limited to 128kbs.  That would definitely cause a problem as
you have mentioned.  For the time being, I re-encoded the files at 56kbs
to see if that helps.  If so, I'll look into using a even lower
bandwidth streams.  Let me know if you are successful using this lower
bandwidth stream.
