I had a similar problem a few months ago. In my case, it was with
720p shows on FOX (which was quite weak in my area at the time). The
reception "glitched", the picture recovered, but the sound never did.
I was told by a developer that:
The PS Recording Mode is flawed in some way.. It is the
default.. You can turn on TS recording mode, and the problems go
away.. There are other problems with TS mode, but they appear to all
be in the frontends poor handling of Transoport Streams, not in the
actual file creation..
Are you recording in PS or TS mode? I have not seen this happen again
since I switched to TS mode.
