That's interesting that it takes that long.  It takes about 10 seconds
to display all shows on my system and about 5 seconds for current
shows.  And I don't like that.  I think it may have something to do
with the size of your oldrecorded table.  Mine only has about 120
recordings because I rebuilt my system.  When I display the main page
I check to see if you have previously recorded a show and if so make
it green on the main page.  I think if you have a huge DB that process
takes a long time.  If you go add the following it might speed things
up, but will not show the recorded shows in green on the main page.

add:  $getrecorded = 0;  If you want the shows to show up in green
change it to 1.

change: if (in_array_cin("$data[1]", $recordedshow)) {
to:  if (($getrecorded) && (in_array_cin("$data[1]", $recordedshow))) {

This would bypass the db check and I think speed things up.  I would
like to do something like you suggested where the main page doesn't
have to load all 10000 + show listings.

Remember on the episode listing page for a particular show the default
is to display shows that you haven't recorded.  By selecting "Display
All Episodes" it should display everything.

I hope this helps
