    This weekend i did delayed updates, which haven't gone as smoothly as hoped. ;) This was to the Win10 Creators update, and to MP 1.18.
    Running on Intel HD 5500. Up to this point, things have been generally problem free. Now:

    1) Black screen that a lot of people are hitting. I guess it's just wait on MSFT/Intel to get things sorted out.

    and, my main question:

    2) MediaPortal using a ton of processing (specifically GPU) sitting on the main menu. Default Titan theme. Wasn't a problem previously.

    Playing media/watching TV is fine. By leaving it on the main menu and quickly the fans spin up and the device is getting warn. Not workable - now I'm shutting down the MP process when not in use. Leaving it running hot most of the time not a great idea.

    Anybody else seen this and have any hints/solutions? Is a 1.18->1.17 downgrade relatively painful if I wanted to check that option?
    Worried it may be another symptom of #1 and will have to wait for fixes.

    Cheers - j
