You describe both systems as "frontends" but where is the backend? If  
it is local on the AthlonXP and talking over the network to the 3200+  
that would explain things perfectly.

Are you using any NFS mounts or the like? This slows the recordings  
menu down considerably as well, there was a thread on that a while ago.

So where is the B/E and where is the video stored? If one or both  
needs the network to talk to the frontend things will slow down.
