First post here, like the "tone" of the forum and hope to learn a lot from you guys.
Well, with that out of the way, I've just built my first HTPC and had great hopes for this platform but I'm feeling a wee bit cheated with regards to the UI experience when browsing around in the menus of XBMC. (I've tried Confluence, Aeon and Alaska skins)
It's not constantly lagging as such but it's definitely not instantaneous either.
I've read that the CPU is getting pummelled by the constant refreshing of the menu screens but I assumed (and still do) that the processing power should be quite enough.
Playing movies doesn't seem to be a problem, it's navigating around the menus, displaying posters and whatnot that I wish were snappier.
Now, it's probably not the most overclocking friendly setup so I hope that isn't the solution to everything and the reason for my plight is some kind of missed setting or miracle driver.
So, is anyone else having a smooth experience with their E350/HD6310?
Thanks in advance!
