Like KavMan, I see none of those problems. You likely have a playback problem.
One thing I have noticed about the HD PVR's TS files is that some programs report them as 1088 lines tall. Those extra 8 lines are the garbage at the bottom of your frame. I'm not sure why some decoders show those extra 8 lines and some don't. Or even if the reported 1088 lines is right or wrong.
You can get around this by using MPC and CoreAVC Pro. If you use MPCHC be sure to disable its internal h.264 decoder. CoreAVC has an option to crop 1088 to 1080 (it seems to do this by default when playing HD PVR TS files anyway). And this will probably get rid of your other video glitches.
Another thing to try if you have a graphics card that supports hardware h.264 decoding: try using MPCHC and enabling DXVA. It doesn't work right for me (DXVA works in Arcsoft though) but it's worth a try.
