Re: [CATV] Certain channels "unavailable"

said by craig70130:

This has been happening for over a year and may have been discussed but I can' find anything...

If I have my HD box (non-DVR) on a certain channel for more than a set amount of time (6 hours maybe?), it switches over to a screen that says it's unavailable or some nonsense. If I happen to be watching it before it goes off, a message comes up prompting me to press Select to keep viewing. If I don't, it goes offline. This does not happen on my DVR box. This does not happen on all channels.

All I have to do is pop the channel up or down one to get it back for another six or so hours.

Ideas?

It is definitely Switched Digital!

This first post is a good write up about it:
