Sluggish navigation with "Watch Recordings" menu in hi-res.

Reported by: Greg Grotsky <spikeygg@…> Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords: slow response watch recordings menu navigation resolution
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have noticed a very slow response while navigating the "Watch Recordings" menu. All other MythTV menu systems have very fast response. I run myth natively in 1920x1080 and I have found that if I run mythfrontend in a reduced resolution (using --geometry 720x405) the "Watch Recordings" menu response is very snappy. I have created a youtube video demonstrating this:

I am running SVN trunk version 19241 updated 12/05/2008.

I just want to note that this is not an SVN issue. I have a friend whose system I've helped configure that has this same issue on his HDTV. He is running -fixes and the theme is not relevant. We've changed themes with similar results. When it happens, his Xorg CPU usage jumps significantly which appears to be the cause of the sluggishness.

I have similar effects. UseEvents? is already True. It was better for me, after I upgraded xorg-server from 1.3 to 1.4.

It still happens, but not for every keypress (like with xorg-server 1.3) anymore, but only for every 10 or so.

I found disabling media monitoring significantly sped up the responsiveness of the watch recordings screen (trunk), from the logs it appeared to be checking the 2 empty drives four times a second. YMMV.
