    How much memory do you have in it. As I have heard from the XBMC forums that adding more memory will help. Also is it the single or dual core version. If its the single then adding more memory may not help that much.
    And as a quick update. The client of mine who bought one of these, says its excellent and he gets at least 14 days between charges.

    It's a dual core with 2GB (only one slot ), and it definitely struggles with most HD transcoding, probably because it is not able to make use of the ION acceleration.
