I had QAM working with my HD-3000 for unencrypted local HD cable channels.

I assume you're using the dvb drivers?  Do you have a way to determine
if the drops are in the recording, and not just symptoms of a
system/configuration struggling to playback these large/intense HD

I suggest (for the sake of troubleshooting) recording something
without watching it preferrably outside of myth via command line, and
playing it back later outside of myth.

FWIW I used dvb-apps from http://www.linuxtv.org/cvs.php on a
knoppmyth install and found the following links/posts helpful for
