Lag in transport buttons (not guide related)

Post by jrpatx » Sun Dec 15, 2019 10:13 am

I started a new lag thread because the issue I'm seeing is limited to the transport buttons while viewing a previously recorded program so I would assume it has nothing to do with speed of loading the guide data for slice pull-out which seems to be the focus of the other "Lag" thread.

I'll start by saying that I'm seeing this issue on cheap, no-name, generic Android 6.0.1 boxes which I realize are not officially supported/approved and are certainly underpowered compared to the typical front-end hardware being used by most of you.

However, these low-powered boxes have provided instantaneous responsiveness to the skip-fwd, and skip-back buttons for years. I can't imagine how the addition of a little eye-candy to the UI has resulted in transport lag going from zero to 2-3 seconds per button-push, sometimes even so long that the "app has stopped responding message" pops up and I have to hit "wait" in order to get the desired result.

Can anything be done to cleanup the code and address this delay?
