  Sorry, I wasn't quite clear, it's the existing XO hardware that has
problems with streaming video when done entirely via software. A 1.0Ghz
C7 is fast enough for software rendering of streaming video, but 400Mhz
seems to be a threshold for software rendering of networked video. Both
the C7 settop/NetBook I have here have Unichrome support (OpenGL), which
helps for "YouTube".
