Not for me. My changes aren't that slow, but it wouldn't bother me if
they were. I hardly ever watch live TV, and even when I do, browse mode
allows me to see what's on without changing the channel, as does the
program guide on-screen. No reason to change channels often.

It does take 4 or 5 seconds when switching from a cable to a satellite
channel (different capture cards, obviously), much faster just changing
RF channels on the same card.
