[mythtv-users] messed up audio tracks?

In a recent recording of a CBS program, The Equalizer, I noticed something
weird.  When the playback started it had the last part of a commercial and
then the program started with what had happened in previous episodes.  I
could hear the background noise, but there was no dialogue from the
actors.  I could see their lips move, but nothing came out of their mouths
that you could hear.  I skipped by 10 minutes through the recording and
found that the sound changed from messed up to normal several times.  While
the audio was without dialogue, I used the Menu function and changed audio
track from 1 - English 5.1 to 2 - Spanish and what I heard was English
dialogue and background noise along with an announcer describing the scene
as if for blind views.

I've tested this on every type of Frontend I have.  Linux PC mythfrontend,
Nvidia Shield Leanfront and mythfrontend, and Kodi with kodi-pvr-mythtv.
They all behaved the same way.

My assumption is there was some heavy drinking at CBS or my local affiliate
that night.

Has anyone seen this type of behavior before?
