Poor Performance in Plex Media Player when launching from Steam

I have Steam Big Picture set up on my htpc and would like to launch Plex Media Player through it. Unfortunately the performance is terrible when I do so. I can't navigate the top bar without input lagging. Video performance is acceptable.

    why not run it natively?

    Because I'm launching it from the couch with a remote control. I don't want to pull out a mouse/keyboard each time.
