I doubt their interfering with each other. I have some remote lag in the 
program guide and I'm using a homebrew serial receiver. Using the 
keyboard in the program guide results in much higher responsivity. The 
remote in the program guide functions for me much like yours does in the 
recording listings. After pressing down a few times, it might decide to 
go down three spaces a few seconds later.

I'm starting to wonder if it doesn't have something to do with slow 
response from mysql. I'm using mysql5 whereas I guess the recommended 
version is 4 (or used to be). Haven't got around to testing that theory 
yet though.
