For the past couple of months, my 8000 has been really slow while scrolling both, thru the Guide and the saved shows/movies.
Any one know why? I have re-set the darn thing enough times (also had channel issues which were fixed a couple of weeks ago (low signal strenght)) and the issue still persists.
When we got the firmware upgrade in January, people noticed that the PVR/STBs became slower in responding to certain commands - like scrolling through the guide.

The hardware is being asked to do more, with the same processing power. I suspect that the 8000 was hit harder than the 8300. If you're renting I suggest you consider upgrading to the 8300.
I assume by reset you meen a cold reboot - unplug, wait a few seconds for the HDD to spin down and then replug.

This happens to me seemingly randomly. Just last night as I was checking what was on tonight, it suddenly went from scrolling "as fast as it normally does" to "very slow and laggy". And it wasn't just the guide that got slow, but all operations.
