    TV Priorities too slow to change priority


    I've noticed that the TV Priorities page (GUITVPriorities class) is way too slow to change the recording's priority.

    I've many recordings in the list (about 70) and if I want to move a recording for many positions up or down, I could go to get a sandwich in the meantime ;)

    If I click the OK button on the remote multiple times, MediaPortal records the "clicks" but isn't able to update the screen or showing any feedback. When I come back after 5 minutes the recording is in the correct position.

    Looking at the sourcecode I think the problem is in the methods OnMoveDown and OnMoveUp called every time buttons Up/Down are pressed.
    These methods update the priority of every recording in the TVDatabase (SetRecordingPriority) and afterward reload the entire database (LoadDirectory).
