Hmm.  After a reboot, the transition time into Watch Recordings is now
4-5 seconds, where 1-2 seconds is in mythbackend which will eventually
run on a powerful machine.  I'm running ntpd with no problem so I

One thing I noticed is that it appears that the "pushed" state UI
change for buttons is ignored.  I would be happy if the button
background changed in some way to indicate a response to the button

some button in some theme whose "pushed" state actually makes a
change, that I can have a look at?
