I have the Pace RNG110 and seem to also be having this same problem.
I'll futz with the channel change delay a little. I haven't ever left
it set to SPDIF so I don't know if the recordings work, just not
liveTV, but I can say for sure that sometimes, some channels won't
show up as AC3 with SPDIF. I have entered the modprobe option setting
the default audio input to SPDIF, as suggested by the wiki, but that
didn't help either.
