Hi there.

Upgraded my HDTV cable service (RCN) to DVR last week. Enjoyed pausing and rewinding football games. That feature and the new box in general works fine. Recorded three HD movies over the weekend, including Manchurian Candidate on Showtime Friday night.

Go to watch it last night and the playback is continually jerky -- like it's dropping a frame almost every second.

Did not get jerky playback watching TV that had been paused (of course, the football games don't start as film, which could be part of the issue). I looked at other channels last night and mostly did not see any jerky motion; it's possible that some HD channels showing movies did look a little off.

I haven't yet checked the other recorded movies, but I will.

Until then, has anyone experienced this? If so, is there anything to be done?
