I'd say your signal is the problem. At the very least, fix this before investigating other things...

I believe (at least it was a month ago) that TVHeadend and Rasp Pi are having issues playing nice.

Symptoms are blank screen on channel change, intermittently

Yep - I am running TVHeadend with Raspbmc on my Pis. There are issues with watching live TV, however I managed to get a build of Raspbmc (RC2 28/12/12) which is currently working pretty well. It still shows a black screen if I try to change channels whilst watching live TV. But I can go back to the EPG and select a different channel with no issues.

I believe the problem is back for later (and latest) versions of Raspbmc, but the devs are aware of the problem and are trying to resolve.

YMMV.

Thanks for the update.... I am holding off on implementing a Pi as my sole tuner / media player around the house until this gets a little more stable... but I do love the thing for general media streaming off my NAS drive...
