Hi Sven,

I have experienced similar with my DVB-T. Generally if you want to 
change channel and the front end wont let you because its too busy being 
upset it can't change to its current one the only way out I have found 
is to go back to setup and change starting channel to something 
sensible, like 1 for me.

I'd be interested in a proper fix for this too...
