I have a GT218 in my Zotac ION/nettop box and it works great as a Myth
frontend!  I installed F17 and just added the nvidia driver via yum from
rpmfusion and the VDPAU works great.  1080 HD going out HDMI with a
system load of about 0.3.

My next project for this box is to try to get the BluRay player working
on Linux.  Now *that* I expect to be a major trial.  :-/
