This has happened at least the past two Sundays on my Series Pass for NFL RedZone. I can tune the RedZone channel 803 no problem when I select it from the guide. But for some reason the DVR fails to tune the same channel when trying to start the recording.
From the log:

The DVR times out after 6 seconds and then fails over to the lower priority TVE RedZone channel 6182, which records fine. But I would much prefer recording from the Prime channel because the TVE channel is poor quality. The video is jerky and of course it's only stereo audio.
Side question...I know it's normal that TVE channels are only stereo audio, but Is it normal for the video from TVE channels to be so jerky, as if the frame rate is low?
