Thanks very useful info, I had the same problemYour Humax updated itself overnight Wed/Thur to version 1.03.12. It was previously on a 1.2.xx version which doesn't suffer from the slow EPG problem. You can downgrade again by downloading the earlier software from Humax's web site but you will need to take additional steps to ensure that it doesn't just upgrade itself again. See http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/non-custom-protection-from-ota.1842/
After about a page and a half of discussion about the EPG lag on the 1.03.12 OTA thread on MyHumax.org, Barry posted the following:Maybe that explains the cancellation - reduce the flood of complaints.
This indicates to me that the EPG problem is not to blame though you may be right that it was the complaints, not the fault per se, that was the issue for Humax. Interestingly, the thread at MyHumax.org has temporarily been closed until there is more news: presumably to stop people posting unwarranted speculation regarding the OTA update cancellation. Accepting that the suspension is nothing to do with the EPG issue, there is a real problem with the EPG: the best available estimates indicate that scrolling is four times slower with 1.03.xx as opposed to 1.02.xx. Discussion of these findings did seem to cause some irritation over at the other place. Anyway, it is good that Humax have acknowledged that there is a problem and are working on a fix.Barry@MyHumax.org said:The OTA was suspended late yesterday afternoon by the DTG, and next weeks repeat was removed from schedule earlier today, for reasons I cannot go into but....
Important to note it is not because of any issues being reported here.

Yes, odd that. Whilst I can fully appreciate that the lag isn't a big issue for those who rarely use the EPG or for those who use it in a particular way, it does make the box difficult to use for many. Any large enough corpus of beta testers should have picked it up. I rarely use the on-screen EPG and when I do I tend to use P+/P- to page so I can tolerate it for now.Discussion of these findings did seem to cause some irritation over at the other place.
It is not a deal breaker for me, but some people hate it so much that they downgrade. It probably depends on how much and how you use the EPG. I found it most noticeable on an updated HDR-FOX after using a HD-FOX on 1.02.29: then you realise how much it has slowed down.I recently received a refurbed box running 1.03.11. I noticed that it had updated to 1.03.12 and the speed of the EPG seems fine.
Just a comment.

How many items do you have in your recordings schedules list? the EPG navigation seems to slow down when you have lots of schedule entries. There is an example on the 'other thread' HEREI recently received a refurbed box running 1.03.11. I noticed that it had updated to 1.03.12 and the speed of the EPG seems fine.
