    To clarify ..this played okay (except for stutter) ?
    mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau sample.mkv

    Any warnings/errors reported?

    Can you try the exact same recording/file in mythtv (from videos folder)..

    mplayer cmd line:
    The -vo cmd option sets the renderer. (vdpau, openGL Xvideo etc)
    The -vc cmd option sets the decoder. (multiple h/w or s/w)

    AFAIK You can not use (not yet) VDPAU decoder without VDPAU renderer.

    I think I need to first get off 295. I was at 260 (I think) and I was told that wasn't good. All I did was add (x-swat I think) ppa and updated nvidia-current. What ppa do you recommend so that nvidia-current is a good version (270 or 280?)?

    right

    I'm getting the sense that this is not ideal.
    Rather than fighting with a "bug" in 295, I'm thinking I should get to 280 or 270 or whatever is considered stable/clean...

    Keep in mind, I'm having the exact same issue with 295 that I had with my "old" 260 drivers.

    Well it doesn't seem to be a driver issue then does it...

    I don't think so, but I'm not sure what else to look at.
