It's funny you mention that pike...I've been using XBMC in 1080i 16:9 on a NTSC 32" Sammy CRT HDTV....every now and again (depending on the file) I get some issues - severe hiccups, not playing the file etc.
Same here. After reading this thread, I tried switching from 1080i to 720p and now all my problem videos play just fine! 720p for me now!

just a thought regarding this comment ...
because the current default skin (Pm3) seems to take up a lot of memory, and Blackbolt's new skin MC360 will be tiny in comparison due to it's use of vector graphics, will this free up a sizeable amount of memory that could help rectify this problem?

I generally use 1080i becaues my 40" tv doesn't do 720p. I like the upconversion of videos, but I really wish there was an option to increase the font size or an option to switch to a different resolution when videos are played. It's too damned small at 1080i. The font size at 480p is a bit larger than I'd like, but definitely preferable to squinting at the TV all the time. If I had a larger 50" or 60" TV I don't think it'd be a problem, but I don't so that's neither here nor there.
