    I've been experiencing some TV problems since my cable company tossed around some frequencies and I had to reconfigure my MP setup. One of the problems I'm having is that when I switch channels by poping up the tv guide and selecting the new channel the new channel stutters like crazy. This also happens when I use channel up/down. I does not happen when I select the channel number from my remote. Does anyone have any idea what this could be related to? I've tried switching off hw acceleration, changing to NVIDIA PureVideo and ffdshow codecs but neither of these measures make a difference.

    Any help is appreciated!
