Last night I was tuned to KNBVC-DTV in LA in at 36.1

I was locked on the news which is in SD and could also tune 36.2 and 36.3

When Leno came on I was programmed to record

The moment the station shifted to HDTV I lost the lock

Have others found that they can also lock SD but lose HDTV from the same station- all other things being equal?

With my WinTv-HD I've seen a similar problem. SD sub channels will come in fine, but switching to an HD sub channel will cause the sync to fail. This happens with signals that have high SNR as well as marginal signals, but more frequently with the marginal signals.
