Not necessarily. All these channels are high band horizontal. My system
for example still has the 'bug' that if both cards tune vertical, one of
them looses signal. Or that if the first isn't tuned at all, the second
never catches a signal, but is able to hold a signal. Both effects are
power related. (horizontal=18v, vertical=14v)

probable cause is EPG scan. EPG scan sometimes ruins live TV for me, but
only on some channels.
