I have a few VDR boxes and all of them now are using Nvidia cards and
vdpau. I output the audio/video to my nice fancy tv with DVI->HDMI
cables. It works great. I'm not sure what you're really asking
though when you say what setup is ideal. That completely depends on
_your_ needs & wants but the only people I know with 'juddery'
playback only experience it because the video card they have doesn't
really have enough horsepower for the higher end hd content. Which
could be solved by simply buying a different inexpensive video card.
