I think we are in EXACTLY the same situation now that I apparently fixed the
instability issue with the HD-PVR.  I suspected my most serious instability
problem was related to the IR channel changer.  I just got my firewire card
in the mail today.  Hooked that up.  Compiled the 6200 script.  Now, I am
changing channels without instability.  Recordings no longer fail, which was
previously causing issues only cleared by a reboot.  Audio seems to be
working fine when I use the RCA cables.  If I switch back to S/PDIF, some
recordings have audio, and some don't.  Sounds like your exact problem.

I still wonder if this is all related to the DCX3200 STB?  I am tempted to
swap mine for something else just to see.
