1) Wrong mailing list. mythtv-users is more approriate.

2) You don't actually mention what your video sources are.
Assuming they MPEG2?

3) When you say "scroll in the video list", do you mean TV recordings?
Is "Display live preview of recordings" set? Try turning it off?

4) The output from "mythfrontend -v playback"
may help people on the users list to debug your problem
