Having seem the liht that running on and OSX/ATV is not going to give me 1080p I'm now running XBMC on and AppleTV running Ubuntu Hardy (the atv-cloner image) with some limited success but still a lot of picture jumping and freezing. This is with Bluray rips via MakeMKV, containing h264 streams. I still have no video for VC-1 streams.
(also I'm pulling content from my NAS over UnPN - bit don't believe its a bandwidth issue, but am welcome to being corrected)
I all actuality beyond now having 1080p, my issues are exactly the same.

I've seen a few threads talking about different NVidia and Alsa Driver versions....but have not found the definitive current "know to work" configuration (for any specific hardware/Linux disto combination).
There is the perception out there that folks have things running as sweet at a baby...and at the same time many of us struggling.
Am I having driver version issues ?
Is it worth having a thread/wiki page that shows the status of various configurations playing specific content perhaps linking to a thread where we can see existing discussion or post specific version issues or know to update to a newer version ?
