The menus seem to keep up with autorepeat on my keyboard.

Good enough?

PS There can be a couple of second delay looking at the list of recorded

If you want to play with Myth then try KnoppMyth at www.mysettopbox.tv
Download iso, boot, install, run.
Some niggles for PAL and pvr350s but an excellent starting point.
