First let me congratulate every one on the hard work they have done implementign the CrystalHD and bringing XBMC so far!
Second I know one should never change a running system unless there is something terribly wrong! But I did it anyway (wanted a new version of XBMC and CrystalHD driver)!
Yesterday as mentioned above I installed the new CrystalHD kext and Firmware for the google repository. And the nightly build rev. 33240. And then a lot of problems started to come up!
I have a Macbook with following configuration and Software:
Darwin macbook.fritz.box 10.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.3.0: Fri Feb 26 11:58:09 PST 2010; root:xnu-1504.3.12~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

A CrystalHD I think the first model 70012
About 1 minute after launching XBMC the computer gets awfully hot and the CPU cooler revs up to its max. setting around 6050 RPM. And the temperatures reported by smcFancontroller are around 79 to 83 degrees Celsius. And that is without even watching anything! Just launching XBMC.
Solutions already tried.
1) AppZapp all of XBMC including all Sources! (that seemed to help a little, the new release was trying to read all of the entries and trying to refresh them and that made the GUI slow and sometimes unresponsiv)
2) Removed all Kexts, bin and dylib of the Broadcom CrystalHD.
3) Tried all of the available nightly builds.
Currently i have the rev. 33300.
The version I had before must have been from around may regretably I didn't back up that version and I don't have the dmg around anymore. Also I used to have the BCM drivr version 1.00.

In the news section I read something about the a new branch in july!
What did change in the meantime since may that makes the gui use so much CPU?
What can I do to bring it to normal operating temperatures again?
Thanks in advance!
in console.log (dmesg will be cleaner output) :
Quote:kernel *ERR*:/Users/davilla/Documents/crystalhd-for-osx/trunk/crystalhd/driver/darwin/crystalhd_cmds.c:91: Link invalid state 3Not good.
kextstat to show that your driver (kext) does match libcrystalhd version. You should be using 3.6.0 for driver/lib/firmware.
