I have an ION-ITX-C based frontend, which I believe is the same Atom
processor as the Revo 1600. It can play back SD recordings that
originated from a PVR-150 and were transcoded to MPEG4, without
stuttering and without any problems indicated in "-v playback" logs.
The CPU usage according to "top" is around 110%, which is OK because
of hyperthreading. But if I try to play a similarly transcoded file
that originated from a 1080i HDHR recording, there is lots of
stuttering and dropped frame messages in the log.
So, it's hard to know about your specific files without actually
trying. I'd be happy to test if you can upload a clip of at least one
minute or so. (Your gmail account should allow you to upload and
share arbitrary files through Google Documents.)
