Speeding up album art display for SageTV extenders

Posted by onlydarksets on February 1, 2009

On my SageTV HD-100, it was taking 3-5 seconds to scroll through each page of videos or music.  Turns out there are three things required to fix this:

  1. Turn on hardware caching in (enable_hardware_scaling_cache=true)
  2. Reduce the User Input Timeout (Settings | Customize | Inactivity Timeout and OSD AutoHide | Configure)
  3. Enable album art caching (SageMC | Enhancements | Cache Album Art)

Now it’s smooth as silk.
