I had the program guide both before and after switching to Gatos. The
reason I installed Gatos actually dealt with my system locking up
occasionally. It seemed to always happen if the "star wars - linux
kernel" screensaver came on. Googling around led me to someone blaming
the standard Radeon DRI drivers for the problem. I installed the Gatos
version based on that recommendation and as a side-affect it seems to
have improved my Myth performance. Myth is still using way more
resources then it should on my box, but it's getting closer.
