I am having the opposite, the ReindexSearchRoot is taking less time, it is taking between 5-30 minutes to complete and the PvrScheduleTask is taking around 2 hours. I'm not really complaining, you have helped a ton, to go from 6 hours to 2 is a huge improvement.
Well, this is new and exciting. Considering how much success the garbage cleanup went for the ReindexSearchRoot, we can try something that I've never used before. There is a command switch to perform a garbage cleanup of the PVR as well, though I don't understand why it would be separate from the regular GC.

Performs a PVR garbage cleanup.
c:\windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -pvrgc

If that doesn't work, there are 2 more switches for the PVR, but I don't know exactly what they do. I'll have to crawl through the code to see what I see.
c:\windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -PvrClear
c:\windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -PvrRecoveryTask

Should I run the last two switches? or do you think I should run the first one and then try an EPG update?

I'd do the -pvrgc first and see if that works. After that, probably the -PvrRecoveryTask next simply because I am not sure exactly what -PvrClear does yet... need to look at the code.

Okay, the -PvrClear will set the "complete" flag for all your recording requests... basically it will remove all recording requests. I don't think you want to try that one.
