Thanks for your reply. It mainly crashes when changing channel within
the guide and less often when using the up/down arrow.
Usually when it crashes, if you start it again straight away, it will
change channel fine then, but not always.

It's causing some problems now  I have moved my iMac in to the
kitchen/diner. My wife is starting to get fed up, I think she
would prefer a standard lcd TV in there! However the kids seem to have
the final say (as usual) as long as they can get family guy, simpsons
etc they are happy :)
