Note that I did my tests with ST:TNG just to keep text2skin out of the 
picture ;-) but of course you're right: text2skin takes a noticeable hit 
on the cpu.
Anyway, even with enigma channel scrolling isn't slow with the xine 
plugin[*] but it is with the dxr3 (due to 100% cpu usage), so definitely 
cStatus isn't the cause (and I have ~4500 lines in channel.conf).
Since Guy's processor is comparable to mine (heck, his is an athlon, 
mine is a duron), there should be something else.
[*] with xine running on a different machine, probably running xine and 
vdr on the same machine would use too much cpu too.
