this is the new ringbuffer change, its closing out the old ringbuffer for the
show you were watching and creating the new one for the new show. The dev's
are working on minimizing the time delay, and some circumstances (mostly with
PVR cards but I think this bug may have been fixed already) have led this to
cause a freeze, though newer SVN's may already have this fixed (I've only
noticed the freeze happen once in watching Live TV so I feel lucky).
