Optik or satellite?

 

Satellite (or Cable) sends all the channels at once, and you switch amongst them. Optik sends the channel you select down the "pipe" after you select it. It takes a bit of time to efffect the change, send the information back & forth, and then send the programming.

This issue could also be associated with the remote. Check the batteries or factory reset it (remember to reprogram it to your tv if you had before).
