I have lag with both painters. For most transitions it is just as
fast but going into watch recordings or music or schedule there is a
long (15 sec) delay. Also, IIRC there was button feedback to let you
know you had pressed it. In the Myth Center theme the button
higlighting would dissappear. I surfed through some other themes last
night and they all displayed this behavior.
