Well, to give an update, to my issues.
I have spoken to 3 other co-workers who have Fios. All of them have the older DVR (silver with amber display), whereas I have the newer 7232-2
I asked them to look at the channels I see the motion artifacts on.
Mainly Food Network, NGC, AMC and some others.
They all see it !!
My neighbors have Fios as well, and they have the same issue on their Samsung plasma TV.
So, its not the new DVR causing it.
And, its not my setup, it Fios, at least in my local area of Norfolk, VA.
All of these co-workers are going to call V* and complain of artifacting.
None of this artifacting is seen on D*
It must be something in our area, because others on this forum report no such issues.
