Advertisements I *think* that's the message that I get sometimes. I think so far it's only been on the 2nd tuner, i.e. the one that I'm *not* watching. Like you, I presume that this is part of the timeout process whereby "unwatched" SDV channels are cleared and recovered by the head end. Like Joe says, hitting select or changing the channel seems to make it go away w/o issue. I haven't had any issues w/any scheduled recordings either, so this only impacts my "live" TV watching, and again, only on the other tuner.
