I agree that it *should* work for SD.

Forgive me for not having read every message in this thread, what  
mobo chipset are you using? If it's a VIA chipset you may be a victim  
of the infamous IVTV/DMA problems that some of those early boards  
had. Unfortunately, if that's the problem, I have no solution to  
offer other than replacement.

Have you narrowed it down to either the recording or the playback  
(ie: do the recordings made while watching liveTV look OK on your  
MVP) ??
