I had OTA recording of Lost from yesterday. I watched it for about 10 mins and then switch to another live channels, but when I go back to the recording and hit resume the show didn't resume back from where I left off, it had jumped ahead to about 5 mins into the show. Even when I rewind back and hit play it always jump back to the same spot. I tried that a few times and same result. Anyone experience that? It seems to only happen on Lost. I recorded another OTA program and tested it but no problem.

If there were OTA reception problems and the signal was lost (no pun), the recording would skip ahead to where the signal was re-acquired. Typically this also shows some breakup/pixellation just before the signal goes. I have had this often on the local CBS station, where reception is weak.

No, the reception was good. I had no pixellation or black out. It seems to be a bug but I don't understand why it happened only on Lost. Could it be ABC put somekind of anti skip DVR DRM?
