[mythtv-users] Monday Night Football and odd sound problem

Hi all,

I've been having a peculiar problem for the last three weeks that has
only happened on Monday Night Football.

The recording goes along just fine, but then at some point (two weeks
ago it was late in the 2nd quarter, last week it was midway through
the 2nd quarter, and this past Monday it was midway through the 1st)
there is a bit of a distortion in the video and then the audio drops
entirely. The recording continues with the video as it should be but
without audio.

While it is a bit of a relief not having to listen to Joe Theismann
and especially Tony Kornheiser, I'd rather skip those bits myself than
lose the audio entirely.

The funny thing is that this has happened three times in a row with
the same program, but hasn't happened at all with any other program on
any channel -- the Sunday football games record normally, as do other
programs on ESPN.

There's nothing in the backend logs that shows that anything is amiss.

The setup is a DCT-6200 into a PVR-250 with S-video and RCA->1/8" stereo mini.

Anyone see anything like this before?
