When my problem happens, it says "Signal 0% ... (L____) ? lock".
I don't remember if its "no" lock or "partial" lock.

Just an update: resetting the system each morning is *not* working.
Apparently, there's a small chance that any recording will put it
into this state. It sure would be nice if some myth expert could
atleast tell us precisely what goes on when a channel is changed.
Nothing ? A fimware download ?
