It took a while to figure out all the little issues. This is how I have been able to get near perfect resuls.
STB: Motorolla 6200 (7.15 firmware)
Software: DCTRecord, TStoATSC, HDTV2MPEG
Playback, via MyHD120, (and occasionally MPC)
Details can be found here:Post 4009296
The only minor changes I've made to that process is recording in 128MB file segments, rather then 4G files segments. This keeps data loss to a minimum under a power failure. This also helps with the MyHD/non-ATSC TS format issue. Again, read that post for more details about this process with the MyHD120 card. (some things may apply to the Hipix card as well.)
At the time I was testing all of this (last summer), I came to the conclusion that VLC was a waste of time and that for playback, the MyHD card did the best job, as long as I made the streams ATSC compliant. (The only ones that come off the 6200 that way are the OTA rebroadcasts, YMMV.) When I do use a software player, I use MPC with WinDVD codecs.
