I have encountered this problem several times, each time I was able to resolve by one of the following methods:
1) Re-save the file using HDTV2MPEG2, openign the file and then converting to a .ts file with another file name.
2) Trimming out the lead in to the program and then re-saving using HDTV2MPEG2
I haven't really found a pattern but I believe it doesn't like it when the specs change, say frame rate or resolution. I seem notice the problem more when the recording starts with SD and then changes to HD. But it is not always the case.
I say just try re-writing the files using a .ts editor of some kind, it has worked very consistently for me.
