Is there any way this could be responsible for another issue I've
noticed with HD-PVR recordings, namely jump backs? 

Commercial flagging doesn't keep up with real time on these recordings,
so if I'm watching an HD-PVR recording with only a slight time delay, I
have to use FF to get through commercials rather than skip.
Occasionally, when I hit FF, the display will shift back in time a
couple of minutes. The time shown in the OSD is still the correct time,
but the time being displayed is behind the correct time. If I quit out
of the recording and restart it, it's back in sync again. 

To give you an idea of the frequency of this issue, it will occur 2-3
times during a typical baseball game, which lasts about 3 hours and has
about 25 short (1.5 minute) commercial breaks.
