Answered those questions myself.

Have done the same and browsing now much faster (although I am still using V1.04) Even the first browse whilst caching was way faster so i think my DB must have become corrupt or something

I don't do any transcoding so nothing really pushing me to upgrade to later versions as yet.

I'm happy again :)

So, it seems like its just thje process of parsing the media files that takes so long. If its been properly pre-parsed then its reasonably quick? I can confirm that it seems this is true. However, brosing my raw files is too close for comfort.

I know I've seen some remarks about TVersity which implied that the scanning of the media library it did is considered by some to be a negative thing. But perhaps it is a neccessary evil to get consistantly quick browsing. You wouldn;t neccessarily haveto require a scan. Rather provide it as an option for those who want it. Newly added medai could still be browsable, but at a slower rate than after the periodic scan.
