I'm also in the USA and use Comcast for my recording, and I've given up 
on comm detection.  I blame it on Comcast, when they moved to h264 from 
mpg streams it all went to hell (including a noticeable- for me - drop 
in video quality).  I long for the day there is competition for Comcast 
where I live.
