Multimedia, AV VLC 2.0 has been released. "With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 is a major upgrade for VLC. Twoflower has a new rendering pipeline for video, with higher quality subtitles, and new video filters to enhance your videos. It supports many new devices and BluRay Discs (experimental). Completely reworked Mac and Web interfaces and improvements in the other interfaces make VLC easier than ever to use. Twoflower fixes several hundreds of bugs, in more than 7000 commits from 160 volunteers."

And you cannot run XBMC 10 on a RADEON 7000, as it does not support enough OpenGL for XBMC to run. You get corrupted cursors, corrupted graphics, videos won't play or just show a black screen.

Just an after thought - have you tried running "fake fullscreen mode" as that's known to fix a number of rendering glitches.

I'm not saying the latest builds of XBMC is perfect on older hardware, but it is very configurable.

Failing that, just pull an older edition. this whole "must run the latest software" mentality is great when you have internet-facing systems with potential security holes, but this is just a graphical front end to your multimedia. So who cares if it's v10 or not.

However, you could always try something not based on XBMC source - like I repeatedly suggest. :p
