Tonight I decided to update all of my boxes with the latest autobuilds
from the mythbuntu guys. I have been using their repos since I updated
to 0.23 but haven't bothered until tonight to update since they update
Turns out the new builds have fixed my problem with "Please wait..." !!
Hopefully this will work for you as well. I do need to have composite
disabled otherwise I get horrible tearing...
