42TL515U blacks out when changing channels in different formats

This television is getting annoying. Unlike our previous television, a Samsung, whenever I switch from a program from a non HD channel stored on the DVR to a live HD broadcast the Toshiba frequently seems to "get confused" with the format switch and the screen goes black. Sometimes I have to reboot by turning it off and on and then wait 40 seconds for it to power on and go to the HD station. This was an expensive purchase - at least for our budget - but I am very disappointed. In retrospect, I probably should have bought another Samsung or the Vizio.
Usually, you can turn off a video setting and it speeds up the responce time of the set top box. Try hitting menu - settings - video settings - sd override and selecting off. There are other settings in there but they dont seem to affect the responce time much.
