I think the media players are to blame here. At least Xine seems to have
difficulties with HDTV material. Have you tried recording with other programs
besides vdr? For example you could try recording with dvbstream to see if the
problem is with vdr.

BTW. Check http://www.hd-1.tv/ for the program list.
