Strange.  On my 0.24-fixes (remote) frontend without the patch, I can 
load ~1900 recordings in well under a second (like it's on screen before 
my finger releases the remote button).  It's fast enough I often use the 
Watch Recordings jump point to go back to the "All Programs" at the top 
of the list rather than scrolling.

Are you guys who have extremely slow load times using some non-default 
options, perhaps?  Or do you have poor-performing MySQL servers or 

Have you tried running optimize_mythdb.pl?

I can't believe it's down to CPU or RAM, since JYA's 3.4GHz Core i7 quad 
is much more powerful than my AMD Athlon II X2 250 (3.0GHz dual-core) 
with 2GB RAM.
