Very wild guess: Do your digital stations change the stream type in
the middle of the show? In other words, are some of your commercials
at a different resolution, or are they interlaced while the main
program is not, or do they use a different number of audio channels (2
instead of 5.1)? My guess is that something is causing the frame
count to get screwed up, and thus confusing the processing.
I honestly don't know what I am talking about, that is why I am
calling it a very wild guess.
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
