Assuming you have an HDTV somewhere in your setup, you should temporarily take the 30k out of the setup and try to connect the 6208 DIRECTLY to the HDTV with component cables, then see what's going on with live TV and with recording to the hard disk. If you have something weird or you're on a computer or something, I'm done.
If everything is good that way, there is a FireWire problem somewhere--maybe the 7.15 firmware is still not right.
If you have the SAME problems without the 30k as you had with it, then it's either the box, or a problem somewhere else in your system or your cable.
Back in the old firmware 7.07, I would get a never get a freeze on the picture, just macroblocking constantly on my 30k. As I said before (on 7.15), now I get the picturing freezing after a few seconds. So I'm lean toward a firewire or cable box problem.
