[mythtv-users] HD-PVR: Trouble Recording NFL Football Game in HD and 0.22

First, let me say the results I'm getting with the Hauppauge 1212,
0.22, and a frontend that supports VDPAU is incredible.  Recorded
files are smaller and the frontend uses only 30% of the CPU 
( Intel Duo at 3Ghz ).

Has anyone recorded an NFL Football game in HD with the
HD-PVR and 0.22?  Any problems?

I am consistently getting gaps in my recording.  1-2 seconds
of frames ( 60 frames ) just missing.

I've tried a couple of games and its consistant.

Running Mythbackend with debug=all,  I see messages like the
following in my logs about the time the frames are skipped.

I don't know what they mean, but words like clear, skip, flush, discard frames,
reset, do   not sound positive.

I also had similar recording jumps with Saturday Night Live ( SNL ), but good results
with pre-recorded shows like Monk.  News shows seem to work fine, also.
