    If you got a program description that is more then the field could handle it will start to scroll after a while, the speed will decrease by time and after some hour it seems completely stopped. I have found the symptom everywhere in the TV section, not just in the TV Guide.

    This seems not to be a skin problem, and it is found in all current versions (notice it with: default and Nova Black in 1.2.3, default and Titan in 1.3.0b).
    I don’t think it is a resource problem, no resources seems to “be eaten” and if you change program it will start over.

    I guess that there are some kind of function that calculate scrolling speed depending of amount of text, and that function presumable is not reset after a cycle.

    I would call this a “beauty spot” with extremely low priority to fix.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Leave MP with scrolling program information on the screen for a moment, the speed will be decreased, and how longer you wait how slower it will scroll.

    No response in a month, so i assume problem is fixed and was related to Screensaver settings.

    Setting to No Bug.
