I record OTA. It happened again with Lost on Thursday.  From what I've 
found online, ABC has
changed something in the stream which makes it non-standard.  It doesn't 
affect old programs
(i.e. re-runs from last Fall), but new, first-run shows are whacked.

Pause and unpause have no impact.  Neither does jumping around through 
the recording.
