My Genie is set as recommended by Jimmie above, and it takes exactly 4.5 seconds from the time I push the channel up/down button until the picture is on the TV.

Just got my HR34 a couple of weeks ago. It is not significantly slower than the HR24 it replaced. However, that could be because it still has 84% free space. Channel changes are roughly the same, as far as I can tell. I'm not too sure as I rarely watch live TV. Overall menu response is maybe a little bit slower, but certainly acceptable.

It might also make a difference that I don't have any client boxes (only other *peer* HR24's), so the HR34 doesn't have to serve up content to them most of the time. This might be the biggest factor since there seems to be a lot of variance in the experiences out there. Realistically, only 2 TV's are used at any given time, and only rarely is more than 1 show being streamed over my whole-home network. 80-90% of the time, only 1 TV is being watched, period.
