Tell me what you're having trouble with. What plugins do you have installed? Because it doesn't do much without the plugins.
Yeah, I only had to do it once, but using the "mouse" cursor with the remote control to try to enter login information on the onscreen keyboard is a nightmare, so I haven't logged into anything other than Netflix, which took me a while.

Part of the problem is that it won't pick up my mouse (an old apple mouse) or keyboard (a Mac keyboard), so I'll probably be better off when I get those.

I was also hoping that the remote apps (XBMC Remote or XBMC Commander) would mirror the screen and allow more touchpad control of the screen instead of just working like the remote that comes with it.

So I think the first thing is I need to get my interface with it better (getting a wireless keyboard), then I think I'll be ready to start exploring its capabilities further.
