Why is there a 537 and a 543. These are both Showtime aren't they? The same thing that is also on 71?

A work around would be to watch/record the new Showtime West HD.

Anyone else seeing A/V sync problems on Showtime West?

I've now watched 2 movies recorded off of Showtime West HD over the weekend, and both had some sort of strange distortion in the form of a horizontal line all the way across the screen. It was about 1/5 of the way up from the bottom, which happened to fall right in the middle of the (very very annoying) "call now to order showtime" banners, which is also when it's also most noticeable. There's sort of a disconnect between the top half and bottom half of the letters, as if that line of 3-4 pixels is shifted or somethign. It's less noticeable during the normal course of the movie, but once the credits start to roll it's very obvious again. Anyone else seeing this?

They were still happening today. I checked on both my HR-20s. One is using HDMI for both audio and video and the other is using HDMI for video, and digital to my AV receiver for audio.

I wonder where the break-down is?
