I was viewing a replay of the Titan/Cowboys game earlier today on NFLHD using the 8300HD and it did not have the stuttering.
I've read that Scientific Atlanta / Cisco has issues with Harris NetVX HD encoders. With a 5.1 audio feed at higher bitrates, there are occasional audio dropouts. If the audio is in stereo, the 5.1 bitrate is reduced to really low levels, or there's motion on the screen, there are no audio dropouts. Last I checked, Cisco and Harris are blaming each other for the problem.
Fox recently has switched to Motorola encoders for national OTA distribution. NFL Network might not have any Moto encoders in their pipeline. Could Cisco STB's have issues decoding Moto-encoded signals with lots of green in the picture, or maybe video noise (which is oddly absent in the commercials) and
green? Sure, it's possible.
