Default Ch 109 - Marvel Movies HD Popup Problems

Watched a bit of this channel tonight (Thor from 20:00) and midway through the broadcast there was a blue screen apologising for the interruption to our viewing. After the blue screen went away there was no sound on the main/DD audio track. After a couple of minutes I switched to the family/stereo track and kept checking back occasionally, but the sound on the 'original' track didn't return so I gave up on 5.1 audio.

Then there was a long blue screen after the movie had finished. As I speak, the picture is still breaking up in an unusual fashion (not like usual weak signal/weather problems), and I just got another blue screen at the start of the next Thor movie.

None of my other channels have any problems, and the blue screen apology makes me think it isn't just me. Anyone else having issues? Is this a regular problem on this channel so far?

It was reported elsewhere re the DD audio, but this is the first about a blue screen factor - see Marvel pop up channel 109 audio issues in the General section.

Thanks. Sound still glitching, and just got another blue screen apology. Giving up, this is unwatchable. Fortunately I'm not that desperate to watch the movie, more something I had on in the background.

Possibly related, in the PVR Decoders section: New explora software
(I don't think it's a software update though.)
