Yes --- My receiver just locked up on WLWT-DT as well on my Zenith HDV420 receiver around 12 pm -- first tuned to WLWT around 11:40 after first reading your message. Interesting thing is, Audio/Video from WLWT-DT is still just fine here, but after being tuned to a WLWT-DT for a few minutes with EIA-708 "digital" Closed captions turned on, I can't turn the channel(or adjust anything on the receiver for that matter -- Captions also "locked up" and are displaying a few words from several minutes ago as the receiver is locked up!- Watched HD Leno from them Last night, fine then, and was also fine Sunday Night during "American Dreams"...and there were no problems then, but I didn't turn on the captions ....
I have had the Zenith HDV420 receiver lock up and need resetting on WLWT-DT before though, haven't had it lock up anywhere else that I can recall. Seems like everytime this has happened, the 708 captions(which my receiver supports through PSIP I believe) will go missing for a while afterwards until they "fix something".
Update: Ok, after turning off receiver and turning it back on, turned off the 708 captions, and it's not locking up on WLWT-DT now -- which is the usual situation when I've noticed this happen on previous occaisions.
In addition to "rebooting", just some ideas, but you might try rescanning channels, or manually tuning to channel 35 to get to 5-1 to see if that helps. If you have captions(particularly EIA-708 or so called "digital" captions) turned on, you might want to turn those off as well - Just some ideas.
