Load average: 5.35 5.02 3.36 3/96 403
271 1 root R 538m144.4 0 72.2 /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /var/run/lirc/lircd

This is the latest build above.....

PS should add using cec on the tv remote, dunno if that causing issues....

How do you know it's lircd hogging the cpu? Make sure you don't have any scrolling text on the display, that will keep the CPU busy.

It is static and looks like the PI has frozen, but it hasn't in reality.

See here. There is a solution, to use an animated GIF, but the OpenELEC build system doesn't play nice with binary patches so for the time being (as this is a development build, and a working spinner isn't something I consider critical, given the alternative) I've just disabled the CPU-intensive animation in my builds.
