I have seen this with Genie turned on, with the first Genie release, it seems this is still a problem. I turned off Genie, since its original release, because it seem to make things more unstable. If you have just turned on Genie, it may be taking over all 5 tuners to do what it does, ignoring the fact that you are watching TV. As for things I have seen so far with this release; audio dropouts over HDMI. Seems like this is a recurring problem. Easily fixed by stopping and restarting the recording, or change the channel back and forth on live TV.
