Default Video Memory needed for 720p / 1080i?

I set up my new Mac Mini for dual boot between Mac OS X and Mythbuntu 9.04, and updated the MythTV builds to the VDPAU capable versions (from the Avenard repository).

When I have playback set to use VDPAU, 720p works fine, but 1080i doesn't play - it gives me an error message in the Myth GUI.

My Mini has the default 1GB of RAM, meaning it has 256MB of video memory. Is this a factor?

Are there any other tips for people using the nvidia-based Mini? I'm guessing this is a very common HTPC platform.
