    More than once, I've noticed the mini tuning to a different channel than what I select in the grid guide. I select ABC, and the on screen guide says ABC, but the channel being shown is not ABC. I channel up, and channel down, then the video is correct .

    I've seen this once as well. Selected my local Fox station from the guide and what came up was clearly the History channel. Confused, I brought the guide back up and as I recall it showed that the current channel was Fox, so selecting it again did nothing. Channel up/down fixed the problem for me as well.

    I suspect the tuner was somehow stuck on History from a previous recording, because my son records lots of American Pickers episodes on that channel. And I never experienced this when the Mini required a dedicated tuner - it happened after dynamic tuner allocation was implemented.
