I experience the same issue (on both a Core 2 Duo + 8500GT and an Ion
system) - ended up just editing the theme to remove recordings fanart.
When fanart existed, scrolling was fast, although the fanart itself
was slow to load, so I'd often not see it anyway before I scrolled to
the next recording. When fanart didn't exist (still a common
occurrence for a lot of Australian/British TV) it was extremely slow.
