-- Slow channel guide display (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=174902)

How much guide data does the Tivo keep as opposed to regular non-DVR STBs? Obviously the slowness of the guide is a function of this to some extent - the more data that must be indexed and sorted, then the longer it's going to take to render on screen. Correct? Also, is there an issue with disk access or some other bottleneck? Keep in mind that the unit is already laying down two streams to the HD concurrently. Accessing the guide data is yet another process requesting disk access. What's the RPM of the drive in the HR10-250?
Perhaps someone with further knowledge can enlighten me.

Happily enjoying the HR10-250
