Updating Sources under 2.7.1 is taking a good while longer than before. I am running Windows 10. Is anyone else having this problem?
what kind of setup do you use?

video files on internal/external disk or NAS? (usb2/3 - 100mbit/1gbit?)
what cpu and memory does the pc running tmm have?
how many movies/episodes?

from my tests tmm is not slower now - but I have a rather powerful setup Wink

EDIT: do you have many subtitle files? Do you have many text files (except NFO) in your movie folders? Which updating does take longer now - TV shows or movies?

Found already some points to improve...
I apologize for the time lapse since OP.

I am using Windows 10 on an i5 with 8GB ram.

Video files are on a 2TB hard drive connected to Linksys E3200 via Ethernet (no wireless). This setup is not optimum for running updates on tmm but does well with multiple Kodi setups hitting a single hard drive accessible via the router that is always "on".

I have 360 movies and 120 TV Shows with about 2250 episodes. Movies appear to be faster while updating than before Big Grin. TV Shows appear to be the culprits Confused.

About 58 Movies have subtitles and TV Shows have zero. Also, I do not have any additional files other than what is scraped by tmm.

By the way, I have been "cataloging" videos for a long time and have used various software/code bases over the years. tmm is by far the best agent to organize my video library especially for someone who is OCD about file names, directories, and artwork. Kudos to the team!
we've put several performance improvements into 2.7.2 - I hope you will be satisfied Big Grin
thanks for the kudos

Thanks for the attention to the issue. You guys/gals are doing an amazing job and have still kept the software free. I would not expect prompt attention from folks "doing this on the side". But, as always, thanks for what you do! I guess I need to go and donate and I would encourage others to do so as well.
