  • Congo Running Version 5.0.x Software Appears Very Slow

    Problem:

    A Congo running version 5.0.x code seems much slower than the same console running version 4.3.x.  This is quite visible when scrolling any long list (e.g. the Channel List).

    Why:

    This can be caused by setting the resolution of monitor 1 above the default 1024x768.  Monitor 1 runs from the motherboard's integrated graphics, sharing ram with the operating system.  Monitors 2 & 3 are driven by a dedicated graphics card and should be fine with increased resolutions.

    Solution:

    Reset the resolution of monitor 1 to 1024x768 and do any higher resolution display from the monitor 2 or 3 outputs.  Or upgrade the console to at least version 5.1.0 where the graphics handling routines were optimized to help address this issue.
