If it can help to better pinpoint the problem, I have same symptoms, and
same cause (loss of audio/video sync on black fades - dark scenes) with
almost all recordings of C.S.I from Fox Crime - Sky Italia and a lot of
Battlestar Galactica episodes from Fox - Sky Italia in the last two
years. I do not have the same symptoms from other Sky Italia
recordings, mainly sport events. One factor that can compound the
problem is that the channels I am recording are encrypted and the
decoding is done through a real smartcard, real subscription connected
to a serial smartcard reader. 
I'll try to isolate a couple of recordings
and pass them through mplayer to check whether they come out clear.
I do not have the dropouts when I burn the recordings to dvd with the
burn plugin, but I am digressing.
