In the last maybe two months, twice I've had a recording from the HD-PVR
with no sound.  I record from component/spdif.  Each time, the problem
disappeared by the next recording, so I was never able to diagnose it.  I'm
using Verizon FIOS with a Motorola QIP-6200 STB.  Sounds like your problem,
but I can't say for sure.

Sorry there's nothing helpful here, but I thought another data point
couldn't hurt.
