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.

Yes. The TV is an old Pioneer Kuro. It handles 50,60,24. I drive it 
usually with Myth running on a Zbox and everything is silky smooth.
