My next experiment to record a digital 480i signal and see how
>> that plays back as opposed to the pvr250 480i recording.
I was able to record a digital 480i signal last night, no joy. The
results were the same. It seems almost as if the picture is being
de-interlaced and them played back on an screen or being de-interlaced
twice. De-interlacing is disabled. I played back some non-interlaced
content using mplayer and got the same visual artifacts. I also played
back the 480i digital recordings and from the pvr250. They all played
the same. Like I said the gui looks perfect, no artifacts nice and
crisp. Just can't seem to play video in that mode. Has anyone had any
luck playing back 480i content in a 480i mode via DVI? I have taken a
picure of what the artifacts look like, didn't attach because I'm sure
it would violate some rule of posting. If anyone is interested I can
email the picture.

It's not, it was just one of the modes being returned. I double checked.
