This patch in itself doesn't disable the OSD tuning display but if you
use mythbuild.sh then that will download my patch set which includes
which does disable the OSD display during some tuning operations.  This
was done to make interactive TV browsing more seamless.

You can disable the OSD patch either by deleting it from
mythpatches-0.24/mythtv-0.24 or by changing the file extension to
something other than patch or diff.

That seems a very long time, even over a slow network.  With very modest
h/w and a 20 Mbps powerline net link then I rarely see a delay of more
than a few seconds.

OK, I'll attempt to change the OSD patch so that it only affects
interactive TV tuning operations.

Thanks for your feedback.
