    1.2.13 extremely sluggish

    Sometimes it takes up to 5 minutes to respond to a command - PVRX2 takes forever to start up & I can rarely get the PCH to get anything but a blank screen.

    I haven't got to the point of trying to watch anything yet. Right now PVRX2 is hung. Oddly enough, CPU utilization is only 2%, so it's not churning away at anything...

    UPDATE:
    Just noticed a bunch of these in the PVRX2.exe.log file:

    "2008-05-28 08:10:26.437 ERROR [1] Unabled to save ScheduledRecording: The database file is locked"

    Is there a way to "Unlock" the database?

    I have it working again, so you don't need to look into this.

    I think what happened is this (if anyone cares):

    I did a fresh install for this update & then imported my recordings. The first thing I did was a guide update. After about an hour, I attempted to watch a recording & the PCH wasn't responding & PVRX2 took forever to load on my PC, so I restarted the recording service.

    I'm now starting to think that since I have numerous daily recordings (mostly kids shows - some of which are on a couple of times a day), that the it was taking an extremely long time to schedule two weeks worth of recordings all at once (making GBPVR unresponsive for an extended period of time). I compounded that by recycling the recording service.

    In retrospect, I should have done the install & guide update just before going to bed & checked things in the morning.
