I am having the same exact issue. One thing I noticed is that Dish is sending garbage out via SPDIF. Try watching your problematic show. I theorize that the HDPVR has some threshold for bad AC3 Data at which point it locks up.
I was thinking of IR blasting (via another device) power/on power/off as part of my channel change script. Maybe that will fix it.
My lock ups over the last few days: 1. Alice on SciFyHD (last night) 2. Little Einsteins on DisneyHD (Sat morning)

I had a problem like this one with lockups and device errors. I think its also due to AC3. Once I turned off dobly digital on my DirecTV box, my issues went away. I still use the SPDIF to connect the STB to the HD-PVR, but its not 5.1.
However, in the General Setting of MythTV setup, audio section, I change the alsa:SPDIF output type to 5.1 and its generates 5.1 to my receiver. I'm not sure what this is really doing though. But at least I can record with no issues, until this is fixed.
