Most likely, signal quality issues.  But it could be your station
broadcasting MPEG that we don't like, such as not broadcasting proper
PSIP data.  Try running your backend with '-verbose record' for a while
and see if anything interesting turns up in the logs.

You might also try making the big switchover to DVB, since the old
hdtvrecorder stuff will be deprecated by Myth at some point.
