What is your frontend configuration?  PXE boot, USB key, HDD, other?

I ask because I'm running a single core Zotac Atom from a (cheap and sloooow) USB key (with a full Mythbuntu 9.04 install on it) and I've definitely got some issues with Graphite when entering and sometimes even moving around in Watch Recordings.  Pretty much whenever a new preview image or fanart image needs to be brought in from the backend.  So far I've been chalking that up to the actual write to the key, but I haven't had time to switch to PXE boot and see if it solved the problem.

I suppose I also could try moving the mythfrontend user's home directory to an NFS mount and see if that fixes things.  Hmmm...

I have the single core with PXE boot and see no issues.  The system has 4G of RAM installed and plays recordings from a HD-PVR with no issues.  I am using blootubelite-wide as the theme (wife picked it).   I run gentoo on it, so it was a slow build process to get everything installed.
