[mythtv-users] Constant "lockups" on new MythBuntu install

I was wondering of anyone else has seen this and what they did to 
address it. My MythBuntu install is constantly locking up during menu 
selections. It pretty much does it everywhere although moreso while in 
Watch Recordings. While trying to select a program to watch I will get 
in 2 maybe 3 remote presses and then it locks up, sometime for 30 secs, 
sometimes over a minute. Then suddenly it will start working again. If I 
keep pressing the remote (out of frustration) when it comes back a few 
of the keypresses will cascade causing the cursor to whizz off down the 
screen. Like I said, this happens all over the place as well. And it 
does not matter if the machine is actually recording anything either.

This is the first Myth install that has ever done this so it make me 
think it has something to do with MythBuntu. I am on 7.10 with trunk 
installs but I have previously built Ubuntu boxes with SVN builds and 
never had any problems. I also know it is not the remote (Microsoft) or 
batteries as I have had the same one all along and the batteries are new.

Any help would be appreciated, I really don't feel like building yet 
another version...

Thanks in advance
