I have exactly the same problem with some channels here in the UK. My 
stick works fine to watch TV using xine, but occasionally when I try to 
switch channels the whole display just sits there black. If I quit xine, 
remove and replug the usb stick (or use rmmod and modprobe), then re-run 
xine it all bursts into life.

No idea if this does mean its a software problem, but thought I'd let 
people know.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions? I'm happy to help with 
testing if needed.

Or should I just give up and buy a different card / install windows?
