Ok, so, you apparently don't know anything about technology or how technology works. It can literally be faster to display an HD menu in one language than an SD menu in another language. This can happen because compression and coding technologies improve... one language may be interpreted and the other may be compiled. The HD menus may use a better encoding method. They may run on a platform with hardware acceleration whereas the SD menus do not. Etc etc etc. So your claim, even if I give you the most charitable reading possible, is still not apparently true. But you being wrong given the most charitable reading of what you said is not actually the point, because what you ACTUALLY said was, and I quote: Which not true given any reasonable interpretation. SD menus are not IN ALL CASES faster than HD menus. SD menus on my S2 and S3 are slower than HD menus on my Roamio. So, "for everyone" this is not true. Because, for me, my SD menus on my S3 are slower than my HD menus on my Roamio. If you meant to say "HD menus are slower on the same box than SD menus" then maybe you should have said that, instead of saying something else, and then re-asserting more unfounded claims to follow it up. But as I said above, even that isn't known to be true.
