That is the way XBMC works, it constantly refreshes the screen whether displaying any video content or not. So be careful about bumping up any overclock settings (by default Rasbmc uses 800 MHz with force_turbo).

Don't use the "system info" screen to measure cpu. Log in and use 'top' instead, for example:

Code: Select all

%Cpu(s): 22.1 us,  1.3 sy,  0.0 ni, 76.2 id,  0.0 wa,  0.0 hi,  0.3 si,  0.0 st
Raspbmc, idle, currently running at 840mhz:

Code: Select all

pi@raspbmc:~$ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq 
840000
