[mythtv-users] Mythweb: Recorded Programs takes forever...

Okay. I've done this and it makes no difference with Mythweb  [Recorded 

It did find a few orphans, but there were no database issues. I suspect 
that the problem with Mythweb is its retrieval of the program 
thumbnails. Permissions appear correct and it does work... eventually 
it's just incredibly slow and consumes a lot of CPU and disk i/o.

Thanks in advance,
