Aha! Very interesting. I don't have firewire but I do have 3 DVB cards 
in the machine. Time to check all the aerial connections are secure I 
think. I am currently watching tonites recording and everything is fine 
so far (I remember how much I hate adverts now!). I did increase the 
recording priority above all else so that *may* have made a differnce, 
but I will check the connections all the same.
