Yes, I had the delay as well. Two moves on the guide
and then the frontend would freeze up due to the
guide. I'd hit escape and anywhere from 1-5 minutes
the frontend would come back to livetv on the full
screen. It was only on a few HD channels so I switched
to XvMC and the guide problems disappeared. I have two
tunes one being a PVR150 and the guide was never a
problem with the 150.

I had this problem too, except it was not just two moves, sometimes it 
worked longer.
I find out that it was caused by Bob deinterlacer. I switched to Greedy 
2x and guide works now perfectly
