X1 recording Audio occasionally over boosted distorted

I have a new 4K X1 and have recently been experiencing occasional overboost in the audio tract during high volume passages. It's like the VU meter of a tape  recorder exceeding the red zone leading to distortion. Today, I had some on an HBO recording. Yesterday, it was Showtime.

Has anyone else notice this recent X1 anomaly?

audio and video are delivered unchanged digitally. what you hear is directly from the producers of the video product.

I also had this issue with recording Your Honor on Sunday night 1/31/21 with Showtime HD. Alot high pitching distorted sound throughout program. I'm using the 4k Comcast box.
