The thought of it being a hardware issue did cross my mind. I've set the
numbers to 720x480. There's a recording coming up, so I'll see how it
goes shortly :) I wouldn't expect it to work if it didn't work for the
other resolution, but who knows...

Another unrelated question. I just compared the various recording
profiles (Default, LiveTV, Low Quality and High Quality). All of them
have the bitrate set to 4500 and max bit rate to 6000. Is this the
default setting? What are the usual values for the profiles? That IS the
setting that controls the video quality, right?
