Are you running an offical release on the XBox, or have you managed to get 
the CVS compiled yourself?

I tried for a while to get it working (on Xebian), and finally got all 
dependancies sorted, but got stuck on QT libraries when I ran the setup 

How long does it take the XBox to boot to the frontend?

I still use XBMP to play the .nuv's directly (i am also planning to use the 
perl Myth scripts)
