[mythtv-users] menu speed

I just tried mythtv with no window manager and I did notice a slight 
improvement, but it is still quite a bit slower than I'd like...

Going through the program guide is very slow.

Launching the weather plugin takes about 20 seconds and another 10 
seconds for retrieving the weather data.

How much does the graphics card effect performance for menu-only 
functions (no tv, dvd, etc.)?   The menus display quickly, but take 
awhile to switch to another menu.
