So, is this why when I am watching TV and zypper kicks in I get a
stuttering/jumping image? If so, I'm heaving zypper out the window.

I know nothing of zypper in particular, but the same would be true of
any CPU-intensive application whose nice and / or ionice settings were
not adjusted relative to those of more sensitive applications.

And why are you running zypper while watching TV??
