Adding a longer sleep to the end of your channel change script should fix
it.  How long depends on your STB, and how long it takes to stabilize on a
new channel.

Alternately, you could try 0.25-fixes, which uses a different technique to
determine when the STB is stable before starting to record.  Note, however,
that one person has found 0.25-fixes to be even worse for them.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
