    I've got the exact same in Brighthouse Orlando. My Tivo would occasionally fail to tune when having more than two SDV channels across the 6 tuners. I'd put all six on either HBO or Showtime, then pick one tuner and start flipping up and down in the premiums. I'd get a failure (black screen) within a dozen or so channel changes.

    Any possibility you could try a similar test? I like the Pro feature set, but if the basic is doing better, maybe I'd be better off picking that up instead.

    Thank you for the info. Helps a lot in figuring out what's going on.

    Do they have to be premium channels? I don't get any of those. I think Chiller might be SDV, though. So put all of the tuners on Chiller? The surrounding channels aren't all SDV, though.

    Yea BH has a few hundred SDVs. I hate to say it, but probably the easiest way to find which channels are SDV is to change channels with the Tuning Adapter turned off. If its helpful, I can send you the ones from Orlando (assuming your in BH country too)
