Hm, I think that is longer than it's supposed to be. I've heard that
times vary, though.

For me I think it's about 3 seconds or so to change channels with my
PVR-250. Took me a while to get used to; with my old bttv card it was
1 second :)

Bah, gmail's threading sucks... did you say if you were using any sort
of external cable box or other channel changing script? I think I've
heard those can slow things down a bit. Someone please stop me if I'm
spouting nonsense.

Actually, your hardware sounds very similar to mine, save for the 150.
Odd. Hopefully someone else has some useful input... :)

Sorry I can't help more. :/
