Yes, I'm using ext3.  It get's noticably slower the larger the
file.  A 1GB file isn't too bad, but the pause when deleting a
6GB file is long enough that it makes you wonder if something
has crashed (or if you didn't push the button hard enough).
The buttons no the PVR-350 remote aren't the greatest, and
there are lots of times when I didn't push hard enough, so I
end up sitting there for a few seconds waiting for something
that isn't going to happen -- that would be the other reason it
would be nice to have some indication a button press was noticed.

Thanks, I'll give that a try when I upgrade to 0.15.
