I think I've noticed that in the past, too. I seem to recall having to
pause for about 10 seconds for things to settle down a bit. That was on a
previous frontend I had that was on the edge, performance-wise, for any HD
I'm out of ideas of where to look at this point. It certainly seems like
something extra is happening in LiveTV, but it's not making itself apparent
in the logs.
