[mythtv-users] program guide very slow if current program is hidef

I've recently returned my cable boxes as the local cable company wants too 
much and offers no unencrypted digital or hidef programming that I can't get 
over the air.

I've just started seriously using mythtv for watching live tv.  I've noticed 
that if I'm watching a hidef program and try to use the program guide, it is 
so slow that it is nearly unuseable.  It frequently locks up for 30 seconds 
at a time.  If I pause the live tv first, then the program guide is fine.

Is this a known bug? (feature?)  is there a workaround other than pausing 
before using the program guide.

BTW: I'm using version  0.22.20091023-1
