It does seem I can't post the files to the list, so I'll host them for
a while.


Or direct links to the 2:

If anyone can offer any feedback, it would be much appreciated.  I
have ruled out a single channel, the clip is from DragonBall Z (my
brother loves the show :) ) recorded from Cartoon Network.  So it's
SpikeTV and Cartoon Network so far, I don't record much else, but it
would seem to not be a channel issue at this point.

There are 2 clips to demonstrate 2 things:

ffwd-lines is just the lines.  ffwd-lines-end is where it transitions
from lines into viewable video.  These are nuv's, I used mencoder -oac
copy -ovc copy and just renamed them to avi's

I can't offer a full download really, it would kill my bandwidth way
too much.  But if someone feels they need more to work with, contact
me and I will do what I can.

Thanks again!
