Turn on debug logging, I supposed, try scrolling, and then post that log.
It's gotta be a problem with something trying to render while scrolling. A thumbnail or something?
Also, does it happen when you have a particular info view enabled or anything? As in...only large or small info? Or is it just slow whenever you're in list mode?
IDK...gimme that log first, I'll see if it can't tell me something useful.

I will turn in debut logging and try scrolling then I will do it again in diferent views. Normally I use large info and it is slow in file view and library mode. Will post later wen I have a chance to get to tv.

Also, what input device are you using to control the scroll? (Ha...that rhymes). I noticed that in recent builds, the right trigger on an XB1 controller (scrolldown) causes the program to crash entirely. Now that I think about it tho...this doesn't sound like a related problem.

ok here goes,
apple tv (2.3.1) xbmc babylon beta 1
using apple remote.
the above is my debug log taken. I changed to mediastream to enable debugging (could not find it in serenity) went back to serenity, then into movies titles.
scrolled down, scrolled up. Then went from large info mode to small info mode, scrolled up and down then powered off xbmc.

Looking at your log, it really does strike me that the problem is in the fanart yet. This tells me that it's loading/unloading a lot of images to memory in a short time:
I will look at the fanart stuff again, see if I can't tweak the settings a bit more.
You could also try updating to a newer svn build of XBMC...it's *possible* that it could help. I've got family stuff to do today, so I won't be able to play till later tonight. But I'll post again when I've got something else for you to try, k?

Yep no worries. It works fine just sluggish on scrolling.
I will try a later osx svn. Currently on babylon beta 1 so will see what is avb.

Is it regular up/down or page up/page down that's slow...or both?
- deano72 - 2009-04-26 18:51
Regular up down. Pageup pagedorwn does not work on apple remote. Tried adding pup and pdown to hold left and hold right but that did not work. So just regular press up or down

Been playing a bit tonight, and I don't know if it is intentional (or not), but Serenity appears to be trying to load each fanart as I scroll down as opposed to how it seems that Horizonz/Mediastream do it. On the other skins, the fanart only changes when I actually stop scrolling down and not try to change fanart on every step of the scroll down?
Horizonz and Mediastream certainly scroll a lot faster than Serenity (but I love Serenity more).

Well then, I think I'll have some good news for you. First, I *think* I fixed your problem. I started by copying the exact animation used in Horizonz to see how it works. I then realized why I disliked that animation so much, which is because it shows the default bg every time you go to the next movie. SO, I reworked that animation so that it *should* scroll fast, but still not leave a gap when switching to the next item in the list.
I am uploading a build presently that includes these changes (as well as the long-overdue default poster images for movies and albums).
I've also been thinking about your search feature, and I *think* I may have come up with a method that will allow you to pick the start letter to sort from. I hope to be able to work at that tomorrow.
SO...try out the new build, should be upped in 10 mins, and hopefully tomorrow I can add your search dialogue.
