Sure, you can speed it up (the following assumes you are using ivtv). My 
box now takes on average 2 -3 secs, apart from when I press "1" where 
myth waits to see if there is another keypressess before it makes the 
switch (i.e. channels 10 - 19):

1. RAM. Get as much as you can carry, it's cheap
2. Latest version of the IVTV driver
3. Startup of ivtv: with "/sbin/modprobe ivtv mpg_buffers=8"

All in all this has done wonders for mwe.

Hope this helps.
