Yeah, that's one thing I noticed a long time ago about this unit. This was my first TiVo and then when I got a "normal" S2 TiVo I thought how slow it seemed. The SD-H400 is quite a bit faster and more responsive. And just to update that my SD-H400 is still going strong even on 7.3.1. I don't keep this unit doing much since there are no season passes on TiVo Basic.
