I've had problems with HDTV playback on Athlon 2500 processors, too. 
Are you playing back a 720p stream on an output device set to 720p?  

I don't understand how you're able to play HDTV on a 1800 processor.  I
have not heard of much success playing back HDTV streams with anything
short of a 3GHZ HT P4.  (I replaced my Athlon with this exact
combination and I can finally watch 1080i streams on a 1080i TV without
stuttering or playback problems.)
