I'm not sure if this is the problem in your case ... but if you use one 
of the frame doubling deinterlacers (like bob), it makes the guide 
pretty unresponsive.

I've lived with this for a while ... but the developers have recently 
committed a fix in trunk (see here 
<http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3986>).  The solution was to disable 
the deinterlacer while showing the guide. I've applied these to my 
0.21-fixes version and it works great.
