I have home brewed also and I either do not think IR side is the 
problem. The delays became the longer the more recordings are on 
simultaneously. I just tested just to be sure that after second 
recording the playback of another recording starts to snap crackle and 
pop both sound and picture. Very small but noticeable. After third 
recording responces to remote are either very sluggish or in some remote 
actions nothing happens. And as I said earlier this behaviour is similar 
in PIII 550 and AMD 3000+.

And actually I think what ever is causing this may also be the reason 
for the AV sync problem I reported in another thread. I mean after the 
third recording AV sync is about all the time out of sync or atleast its 
no fun to watch. I'll report about this in the related thread.
