I think that I may have had the same problem.
I have virtually the same hardware as you Marvin.
I did two things to try to solve it, and I'm not sure which one of the
two things solved the issue.
I upped my bitrate from 4400 to 4400, and kept my max bitrate the same
at 6000. I also changed my resolution from 480x480 to 720x480. My
flickers and flashes are gone...the picture is as good as watching my
sat straight through on my TV.
I did this in (I'm using AltMenus...so this is different if you are
using the default menus, but should give you an idea of where it is)
Utilities/Setup -> Setup -> TV Settings -> Recording Profiles -> MPEG-2
Encoders -> Default and Live TV.
Fixing it on my system was a pure luck, as I really don't feel like I
have a good understanding of the profiles... ;)
