Where are you located? What channel are you using? HD? What methods  
are you using? Are you using the experimental commercial detection?

I find that in the US, most of my high def channels are right on since  
they LOVE to put the high-def bug in the corner while the show it on.  
Lots of other channels work ok, but some stations are terrible for me  
like TNT.
