Unfortunately my TV doesn't do 720, so I'm stuck with either 480p or 
1080i.  I haven't been able to get SwitchresX to work on my Mini, but 
since the problem seems to be processor speed, I'm not sure a scaled 
720i res would fix my problems.

I have a gig of memory on my Mini, so I'm not sure if my problem is 
memory related.  Also, since I can get steady video by turning off 
the video scaling pref in the front end, I tend to think it's a 
processor speed issue.
