I also have Comcast cable in the suburbs of Boston. I will check out
F/X tonight through my PVR-150 and my "direct cable fed" TV and let you
know what I see.
I was using Live TV to monitor NESN (the Red Sox game) and NECN
(convention coverage) in my office and didn't notice any problems. I
just checked (via the mythweb thumbnail) my wife's recording of "90210"
on the CW network, and that appears to be OK.
