[mythtv-users] Slow channel changes (0.19)

I've just upgraded to 0.19 (from 0.18.1) on my gentoo box.  Everything
worked almost from the very beginning - had some problems with
permissions - as mythbackend now runs as mythtv:users instead of root.
The only glitch is the channel changing - it takes about 8 sec to
switch from one channel to the other. With the previous version - it
wasn't longer then 2 seconds. Now when I change the channel the voice
goes off, a bit later picture freezes, then it seems to do nothing,
then the OSD information shows for the new channel, but the old one
'unfreezes' underneath to eventually change to the new one. I've
already decreased the ringbuffer to about 5MB. I'm using 150mce card.

Is there any way to decrease the time required?
