Talk is cheap. People bitch about how easy it would be to do X or Y or
Z and they expect other people to do it. If you're serious about
changing things, the best way to get developer support is to start
changing it rather then "I haven't look at the code yet, so spend your
time figuring out things for me, ok?"

I mean really, you're dealing with so many variables here that are
outside of myth that you can hardly blame myth without testing things

Like I said, it takes my ir blaster script a long time to run, because
I slowed it down so my cable box doesn't miss presses. That's not
myth's fault, but it adds into the overall time that channel changing

My PVR card buffers internally in itself at least half a second,
that's a hardware issue that's not myth's fault and nothing can be
done about it.

There's no easy or simple fix for this issue. In fact, it's quite
likely not entirely myth's fault. That is why we don't have
documentation on how to fix it, as there's certain things that can't
be fixed, and the list of possibilities are huge.

This is a worthless discussion.
