Just wanted to chime in and say I've noticed the same thing. 0.24 on my identical Mac Mini played back everything flawlessly. I have an HD-PVR and an HDHomeRun single.
0.25 playback stutters from time to time - though I wouldn't say it makes mine unwatchable. I do notice that it gets worse over time and restarting mythfrontend alleviates it for a bit. I honestly have been too busy lately to even think about looking into it, or I'd have filed a bug report with a log by now. I currently use VDA Normal, though I have tried all the VDA profiles with no luck.
