The MythBuntu theme is one of the more heavyweight themes. Try a few
of the other ones, MythCenter-wide and MythCenter work well for me
(for my HD and non-HD frontends, resp.) I do use the MythBuntu OSD
theme, it does use an intermediate alpha value which does consume
more resources than some of the other OSD themes, but I feel it's
pretty enough to justify the extra resource usage and my computers
happen to have the needed grunt.
