I also have this probably, but on every recording, video and even DVD 
It seemed to show up around the time of .20 for me.  I've tried 
everything to fix it.
More on topic I run XFS filesystem on my machine with one SATA and one 
ATA drive LVM'ed
and am able to record 1 1080i, 1 SD, and watch a 1080i wihout a hiccup 
(except that initial 15 sec delay) on an Athlon 3200+
with an Nforce 3 motherboard.

Also I doubt SATA will make that much of a difference, most of it comes 
down to the speed of the disk itself and the amount of cache on the drive.
