Hmm, so over on XBMC I see reference to similar problems and a similar
solution.  I haven't found the exact details, but it sounds like when
the processor is running at 1GHz, there's simply not enough bandwidth
for VDPAU to do 720p.  I don't need the actual processing clock cycles
at 1.8GHz, but it seems to increase the memory bandwidth enough to
keep everything happy.  H.264 from the hdpvr looks great now too!
