While they have made a lot of progress on the PI in xbmc (See this thread: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=184866 ) not much has been done to speed up the EPG Guide, and the Channel List. When I try and bring up the EPG guide it can take upwards of 10-15 seconds to display. Also De-Interlacing support does not seem to be working in the latest builds either.

I just played with the new NUC from intel. I used a pretty low end (celeron) but hey it is quite watchable, cheap and totally quiet.
(AS a frontend, It would need USB tuners to be a backend)
