It's been happening a while, seems like it has gotten more frequent in the past months.
What's your setup? Cable in, set top box controlled with IR? If IR blaster method, how's the SS work when you are moving around in the guide and selecting shows to watch? Does the channel change happen ok when you are doing it?
If you're controlling a set top tuner, what is it, manufacturer and model and control method (ir or serial).
The SS is serial conn. to a Hughes Directv reciever , always has been. When changing channels manualy on the SS (which for DTV the SS uses the Hughes tuner & for off-air uses it's own) it works about 50% of the time.
