Have you loaded icons in the frontend for all the channels? If not,
this will cause significant delays in the EPG as it tries to load the
icons that don't exist as it retries I think 5 times per icon.
The easiest way (in North America) is to use the channel_icons script.
In SVN it is in mythtv/contrib/icons/master_iconmap, not sure if it is
in the repo you are using. It also requires the perl bindings be
compiled into mythtv.
If you do have it, call it like this:
channel_icons.pl --find-missing --rescan
It is interactive and fairly intuitive.
