1min 5 secs from power on to myth menu using a compact flash :D.

This is using b2, so will have to try b6 see if it's any quicker.

Hmm..that's what I get for trying to go faster... 27b6 no longer boots.. :roll:

Just setup v28, and it boots in 3:00, which is great. Some 30 seconds of that is in the BIOS too, so I need to see if I can configure the BIOS for faster booting.

My last hurdle is saving the themecache. So I'm going to scour the forums for a bit now... ;-)

I just clocked my EPIA M9000: 70s pwr-to-menu. Not bad?

13 seconds from pressing power button to MythTV menu.

... using suspend/resume. Yes I know it's not really booting, but hey! I don't have to any more...

Now we just have to fix myth so I don't get 15 seconds of blank screen between selecting a recording and have it play. That's just embarrassing.
