Problem with channels freezing

So I'm watching the Winter Olympics and I like to flip between channels 210, 211, 212 and 213 depending on what events are on, and whenever something goes to commercial. Since the Olympics began, what often happens is that I change a channel, and the channel just gets frozen. The bottom menu appears telling me I'm on "sportsnet" or "tsn", however it holds for 30 - 60 seconds and won't disappear. I am unable to do anything such as exit, power off, or change to another channel during this freeze. Once it unfreezes, it then tries to execute whatever buttons I pushed while it was frozen, such as going to another channel, which often results in another channel freeze! This is very frustrating, particularly since when watching live sports it's somewhat critical to see results as they happen. Has anyone else had a problem with channels freezing, and know of a fix? I have a motorola PVR 3416 if that helps.
