    Are you using a CWS line and do you have a keepalive part above it?

    I can never get around the mgcamd issue with openatv some are fine others need to restart cam while vix doesn't seem to have this issue.

    For CWS keep alive try something like this

    Some use keep alive 60 I find this a bad idea because you are hammering your line server.

    I get this all the time. Will be watching a channel then it goes blank for anything from 10seconds to a few minutes. Or, comedy central just disappears I'm sure it happens to others but I know that one for sure as I watch it.

    Very annoying

    In most cases in this thread, it sounds like server issues. Sometimes it could be down to signal strength issues with cable, but if it goes down for two hours then comes back on it's own it's almost certain a poor server (that said, anyone can have issues - but if it's happening frequently it's a sign of a cheap server).

    Have a look at your ECM times at peak times of viewing - it they're getting into 2-3 seconds then it sounds like the server is getting loaded and you could start to see glitching on lesser viewed channels.
