Just wondering if there's anybody out there that's able to provide feedback on their Ouya and also XBMC's performance on an Ouya.

I'm thinking about buying an Ouya to use with XBMC, so keen to hear any highs and lows of the device.

Thanks heaps,

I am thinking of changing over to XBMC for Ouya myself, as currently Plex is un-useable on it. Might be this afternoons job!

Not the Ouya but I do have a Pivos XIOS, similar specs, and running XBMC linux on it seems to be a great wee box...

Didn't spend much time with Android on the XIOS as it only comes with a remote, the Ouya with the game controller would be neat...

I've got an Ouya and have XBMC on it. Haven't used it much though, as my main interest was to use it for streaming live/recorded TV from my MediaPortal server.  There was a bug in the Ouya firmware that was causing vertical banding during live/recorded TV playback but this has finally been fixed in a firmware update released in the past few days.

The video playback is smooth while watching, but does stutter badly if you bring up the recording list/menu system while playing.

Using XBMC with the Ouya controller isn't much fun.  Apparently you can pair the PS3 bluetooth media remote control with it, so now that live TV is working I may try pairing my Logitech Harmony adapter for PS3 with it.
