If you are using (off the top of my head) kernel >= 2.6.31, you must
have 512mb video ram or higher for proper (full) vdpau support.  You
can search for it on nvnews forums for the complete description from
nvidia and why they chose to do it.  On the revo(s) with 1GB ram
installed, this means you have to add at least 512 more and bump the
card to 512 in the bios.
