Well, it tunes out of the previous channel, picture disappears, the OSD
shown the signal at 49%, it says partial lock, then it says lock, but no
picture.

The non working channels at this point were not working previously
either, so the patch did not break them. I have reception issues, I know
it.

Yes, it is faster, much faster for the tuning channels, for sure, it is
even striking.

Could there be any link to the disconnects, shall I wait some more and
look for an impact?
