Scrambled DVR Recordings

Anyone have the issue of certain channels recordings being completely unveiwable due to scrambling and garbled sound? I have found Bravo, in particular, an issue and my son found the same with A&E. All other channels record perfectly. Here is the oddity, they are unviewable on TV but perfectly fine on the webstream on my PC?!

'scrambling' was an analog method not applicable to digital set top boxes. you may be describing pixellation (high noise and/or low signal condition). have a snapshot to upload? if you have more than one set top box, does the other set top box have the same issue?

The DVR recording and cloud recordings that you are accessing on a PC are 2 different sources. How do those channels with bad recordings look during live tv?
