How much power+current are you giving it?

I had issues (especially with USB) where it would "kind of" work off and
on.  Also consider streaming video will definitely pull power.
My only concern was the XBMC wasn't completely optimized for the PI+GL so
the interface was a bit sluggish.   But it was pretty!
