When I talk about "free memory" I'm referring to the "-/+ buffers free" figure shown by the free command, which in your case is 66MB, so a lot lower than it would be with Frodo. This is the same as free+buffers from the "Mem" line above give or take a rounding difference, which should also be the same as free+buff+cached as reported by top.

So what is the debug OSD showing with 296000/382000KB?

Out of the 384MB left after the GPU takes it's 128MB, about 100MB is needed to load SYSTEM into RAM, leaving 284MB so for there to be only 66MB left suggests that XBMC uses 218MB. I'm wondering if there's any real advantage loading SYSTEM into RAM now, as to be using 218MB suggests that XBMC is fully loaded into RAM anyway doesn't it?
