What is your source for content on that HDHR?  IS it cable?  Has your
cable company maybe moved the channels around (if your are using the
HDHR to capture QAM Clear channels).

I also wonder fi maybe your database maybe has some crashed tables or
related problems.
Have you checked it to make sure it's ok?
