I've just been trying to get a frontend up and running on a 2010 Mac Mini that has a GT 320M and the results so far have been disappointing. 1080i50 content is very choppy - not at all smooth like I have seen previously from ZBoxes I have owned. I'm using the same disc image on both Mac Mini and ZBox, served via AOE and PXE booting. I'm not seeing anything obviously wrong in the logs.

Strange! I'm using myth.28, vdpau and the nvidia drivers too, but with 
opensuse. There are some errors to do with ACPI in the logs. I guess the 
problems could be related to that.
