 I have the same problem

 Please include all output in bug reports.
 MythTV Version   : 19634M
 MythTV Branch    : trunk
 Library API      : 0.22.20090108-1
 Network Protocol : 43
 QT Version       : 4.3.4
 Options compiled in:
  linux release using_oss using_alsa using_arts using_backend
 using_directfb using_dvb using_frontend using_hdhomerun using_hdpvr
 using_iptv using_ivtv using_joystick_menu using_lirc using_mheg
 using_opengl_video using_v4l using_x11 using_xrandr using_xv
 using_bindings_perl using_bindings_python using_opengl
 using_ffmpeg_threads using_live using_mheg

 MCEUSB2 Remote
 PS2 Keyboard

 CPU isn't pegged.  irw shows the remote commands are being received.  I
 can ctrl-tab the X server from the keyboard so the keyboard is getting to

 But mythfrontend seems to queue the commands and process them 2-15 minutes

 Tried turning off/on realtime priority, changing playback groups,  Use
 Events etc.

 Nothing solves the problem.  When a pause event is finally received the
 system becomes responsive again so it must be in the playback loop.
 Seems to happen more often when I am playing HD content.
