Does it coincide with a channel change, or does it happen even if the two
shows are on the same channel?

I ask because I may be hitting the same bug.  Occasionally when I change
channels in Live TV I get that error.  It only happens when I'm using the
card that's connected to my cable box.  I've been theorizing that it might
be caused by the sync disturbance when the cable box changes channels, but
that could be totally wrong.
