    I have both the first generation and new tv's and one annoying quirk is that the Favourites Podcasts list in tv2 take a long time to load.

    On the first gen, you hit Favourites and it just opens. If the list is long, the cover art for each will populate but you can move around the highlight and scroll. In tv2 you hit Favourites and it displays "Loading Favorites" and this can go on for 10 to 30 seconds -- even though I only have 4 favourites right now.

    Is this an iOS glitch or am I the only one experiencing it?

    For reference, I have a 25mbps connection and no other menu loads this slowly. The iTunes movie and tv stores pop up immediately when I click their menu.

    Favorites slow to load

    I have the same problem. It seems like the more I change my favorites (I periodically add or remove titles) it gets worse. VERY frustrating. I've started just searching for podcasts by name instead of using favorites because it's taking so long. Hopefully an update will fix this.

    I have not been able to open my favorites since i upgraded to itunes 10.2. Anyone else having this problem. It used to be slow loading as stated above but now it will not load at all. Maybe it will be fixed with ios 4.3.
