I seem to be having an issue with TCM HD. I find sometimes the channel won't come on when I select a program. I noticed this when I tried to record Dr Strangelove recently but got only a black screen. As well, I find this usually happens if there is a different program on the HD channel and the SD channel.

Just now, I had trouble getting the HD version of Five Easy Pieces. I kept getting a black screen for the first 10-15 minutes. Now, it's coming in fine but I can see an issue if I tried to record it for later viewing. Anyone else have this issue.

The HD channel has blackouts due to lack of copyright on certain movies. They cant air them in Canada. TCM has yet to provide a Canadian feed with substituted programming for their HD channel which is the American feed. The SD feed is the Canadian feed that already has program substitutions for certain movies.
