Comment (by anonymous):

 I'm not sure whether this is the same problem that I experience.

 In my case, the following happens. I watch a UK DVB broadcast on bbc3 or 4
 in the evening, when those channels are broadcasting. I shut down the
 frontent and go to bed.

 I get up in the morning, open up the frontend and choose "watch tv". Now,
 BBC4 is no longer broadcasting a video stream, though the tuner can tune
 to it's frequency fine.
 Since the frontend picks up the last channel it was displaying, it
 complains that there is no video stream.

  Unfortunately, it's very hard to get the channels to change as the
 frontend goes into watch tv mode, and i find no easy way other way to
 change channel outside of watch tv mode.

 Workaround is to record what I want to watch and view it from the
 recordings menu as it records.

 this is more probably a "failure to get a video  stream once tuned" issue
 than a "failure to tune" one, but I suspect the solution will be the same
 for either issue, e.g. allow user to change channels from there, hence I
 include my comments here.

 Hope that helps.
