I, too, will be interested in a resolution to this problem as I am having a similar issue myself.
My set up is two pvr-150 cards. Sometimes when I try to change channels I just get a blank, black screen and mythfrontend freezes up completely (doesn't happen every time, though - probably about every third time). Even the 'stop unresponsive program' utility doesn't close mythfrontend properly, because if I then try to reboot I get the 'shutdown error' message due to mythfrontend still running! If I click the 'shutdown anyway' option and reboot, then restart mythfrontend and choose 'Live TV' I then get the "video frame buffering failed too many times" error.
The only way to clear the problem is to stop then restart the backend.
Glad to here that you don't have the problem with HDHR as I am planning on getting one of those in anticipation of our analogue service being turned off next year.
