Channel Not Avaliable Error Message Question?

Greetings,

 

From time to time over the years my DVR will say "Program Did Not Record Because This Channel Was Unavailable."  What is the difference between the (5) and the (8) code in the Recording Log?  I understand it can be signal or SDV related.

Could be all SDV channels are in use and you're out of luck (please wait... for over a minute when recording was supposed to start)

Or the SDV channel frequency it was sent to is bad from ingress, noise or notched out.

Or the guide has the program and channel incorrectly listed and program HDCP DRM limoited as "do not record"
