In my case, it was live TV after switch channel. Verizon FIOS.

I am watching Live only (ATSC) and it happens fairly frequently as in once in every 4 or 5 times I change channels.

ATSC 1.0 broadcast or cable TV?

Live TV only or recordings?

Edit - the problem playing Music Choice channels has been confirmed and is being investigated.
Hi Nick,
I can recreate the issue fairly easily and a have a short video (184 MB) that recreates it if it helps. How can I get you the video?

Confirming Uninstalling/reinstalling the app doesn't help. It was fine for the first channel change or two, but the longer I watched Live TV and changed channels, the worse it got. It also affects Live Channels. Does not happen on Sony Android TV 8.

Best is to upload it to a site like Google Drive and then PM me the share link.

Unfortunately, it isn't letting me send a private message yet, but here is a link to a shared video:

Basically, it shows watching channel 4-1 (ATSC) and then change channel to 5-1 where the picture is frozen (no scrolling ticker) with audio continuing a few seconds before it also cuts out and the screen turns black. The screen then redisplays a frozen screen with audio after a few seconds (I don't think it will ever recover and will continue doing this pattern). To "fix" the issue, I press right on the dpad (fast forward even though we are live) once and the video and audio are unfrozen.

I am sending diagnostic info, and my specifics are earlier in the thread.

So are we resigned to wait for a Chromecast Google TV update, or does SD need to identify what changed made in the last Google TV update and update HDHOMERUN to accommodate/fix? Why does a FF correct the video?

And is anyone with a new TV with Google TV (like Sony or Hisense) seeing this issue?
