    I have my THR22 now for about a day, and I've had several experiences when I press a button on the remote and the Please Wait screen comes up and sits there for at least a minute.

    (I have programmed about 30 Season Passes, but I don't have more than ten programs recorded yet. Not a capacity thing.)

    Have others experienced something similar? Is this a possible bug, or a defective unit, or just what we should expect?

    Tivo's have always been slow for the first few days as it's indexing all the guide data. Some things will always show a slow down though, even after the first few days. Things like rearranging season passes, looking at the to do list and other things that require searching through the entire guide.

    Give it a few days to "settle down".

    Thanks, I'll take that advice and wait before freaking out. :)
