My system is super slow. I have talked with support many times. Here is what they have told me to do, and here also is a strange thing that I have discovered.
1st. I was told that having 64% of my disk as free space is a very bad thing. I was told to keep my used space at under 20% (free space > 80%) , in order to get my system to be responsive. "Like all computers, they start running slow, as the disk starts to fill up". So I deleted a lot of irreplacable football games, and the bottom line is no improvement in performance.
2nd. I was told that having 84(current) items in the TODO list is very bad, and responsible for system slowness. I was told that anything over 50 should not be allowed. While it took about a minute to delete each TODO item, after a few hours, I got the number down to 35. Guess what? No performance improvement there either.
What I did discover, and nobody seems to care, is that my TODO list grows and shrinks constantly. Sometimes I have over 100 items in TODO, without doing anything, the next day it will be down to 35. Right now I have 84 items in the TODO list. Series Manager shows: -16 Dr. Who -31 Say Yes To The Dress and -13 19 Kids and Counting. and a few other onsey-twosey items.
Strangely the items with the big numbers are all TTITLE specified items. They were created by creating a keyword search, and selecting AUTORECORD. All are all set to record FIRST RUN ITEMS ONLY. Of the 60 current items in this small 3 title group, only a very few are actual first run items. All of the others have dates of 2010, 2011, 2012. The counts change hour by hour, but only for the TTITLE items. My AALL items rarely change as well as the items that just display the show title.
I believe that my system is spinning its wheels playing with all of these TTITLE items. I've told this to support, and they just brush it off, and want me to do a complete restore of my system.
Anybody else experiencing anything similar to this of have any constructive criticism?
In the time it took to create this item, my TODO list has now grown form 84 to 89. This AM it was35 !!
Amd now 2 hours later the TODO is down to 30 !!
