I'm running a test setup with both front and backends for refining 
the KnoppMyth install. Backend connects to HDHomeRun so the OS is 
really loaded when doing LiveTV. This is about the worst case 
situation and I don't recommend it for daily use. Even so, there is 
the typical delay in going from the menu to viewing video content. 
Menu navigation is quick, EPG is also fine.
