I overstated the improvement in entering Watch Recordings; the new
patch seems to slightly speed up the appearance of fan art in the
first-selected recording entry, but the vast bulk of the improvement
of course occurs afterward.

It's strange how, for so long having accepted scrolling in Watch
Records as inherently "sticky", I can now zip around at high speed. In
the almost one decade I've used MythTV there have been one
video-related and two UI-related improvements that stand out in my

* Your #10161
* Angela Schmid's #12157

This patch belongs on the above list.

Frontends:		Pentium 4 3.0GHz, MacBook Pro 2.4GHz
Backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 9.0TB in JBOD
Video inputs:		Five from CableCARD and over-the-air
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 SPDIF, and MX-600
