Can you tell us your playback settings?
From the main menu:
What is your preferred MPEG Decoder set to?
As for 70% CPU usage when recording, yes, this is much too high. Have
you run top while recording and identified which process is sucking up
that much CPU? With a PVR-250 and/or 150, you should be around 5% or less.
