Sounds like the problem I have, it happens on a semi-regular basis to me.

It doesn't fix it, it makes it go away.

I'm hoping if enough people bug D* about this they may fix it sometime. I seem to have the worst case of it.

How many issues do you think it has? You're average PC costs more and has more issues. In this particular case this problem seems to be sufficiently rare that its off D*'s radar, and probably wouldn't have been picked up even if they had done a real beta test. (Unless they gave one to me that is.)

It would be nice, but from other problems (erroneous guide data message anyone?), it seems that D*'s user-reported bug tracking leaves a lot to be desired. I have a feeling if I called about this problem every day for the next year, I'd get a different rep every time that told me they'd never heard of the problem, and I needed to clear my program data, and that would fix it.
The erroneous guide data message wasn't actually causing anyone any problems, apart from existing and confusing (and annoying) people. They fixed that one inside a few months. The channels not available problem prevents basic operation of the unit (mine missed 2 weeks of recordings while I was on vacation).

Their bug reporting leaves everything to be desired. I've been trying to troubleshoot this myself, and everytime I have great difficulty in persuading even level 2-3 techs that I know what I'm talking about. If they'd just shoot a bug report to engineering (or even my observations of repeatability) something might actually get done. I'm not sure that's happened, dspite the higher level techs have told me they were going to make such a report.

If a tech asks me to clear and delete everything, I can tell them I did and the problem came back. I have a lot of "I did and the problem came back"s.
