Thanks Daniel.  That fixed the crash, but leaves me with a slight problem still: When I tune to one of these channels with multiple audio tracks, it doesn't initially play any audio.  If I use +/- to change audio tracks and then change back, it plays.  (There's nothing in the logs on these changes.)

Also, the audio seems to be more crackly than usual on all channes, as if it's dropping frames and then catching up, with or without "extra audio buffering."
