[mythtv-users] Slow guide in LiveTV

I've been having problems with my guide when I'm watching LiveTV. I was on
Fedora 9 with MythTV .20 and recently switched to Mythbuntu 8.10 with 0.21.

I have my system set up to bring up the guide as soon as I go into Live TV.
But the guide's performance is abominably slow. I can scroll through 4 or 5
channels and then it locks up. After about 2 or 3 minutes it unlocks. Any
keys pressed while the system is locked are then executed in rapid
succession. I've tried switching to guide options that require the lowest
CPU power, but no change.

When I was on Fedora, this was never a problem and I ran the highest CPU
demand guide options with lightning quick response.

Can anyone advise me what the problem might be?

Thanks in advance!
