Now I'm going to say this first.
What I am about to bring up here is not entirely about MC360 and it probably belongs in a different forum, but I just don't want to bother the dev boards about this topic I am about to discuss with you all.
Now, with this forthcoming of MC360 for XBMC 2.0, there is a lot of anticipation of course. The skin has gained significant popularity amongst the community, but how long will this trend of excitment and innovation last? With the coming of the HD (High Definition) generation, the Xbox at the moment simply does not have the power (CPU) to decode HD video streams without significant frame drops. Now, unless the dev team and the community of XBMC lay down a proper blueprint of how the GPU can be used to take the stress off the CPU for HD streams, our Xbox's with XBMC MC360 edition will not last long.
So any thoughts on this issue?
(note: more information on using the Xbox's GPU for HD decoding may be found at the XBMC forums)
