Recording SBS

Why are most of the SBS programs that I record unwatchable
due to 'jerky' movements by the actors plus certain delays in the reproduction.?

SBS = Special Broadcasting Service, it is a leading Australian TV broadcaster. We have many more channels and I have no such problem when recording from them. Tks

Too many secrets.

I dropped a hint you may have to reveal the recorder you use but wasn't clear.

Forget all you know and think if you supplied enough detail for others to look into this without telling you to get back to SBS.

The recorder is a Panasonic DMR-XW440. I cannot understand why all other channels perform
perfectly when SBS programs do not. As for detail - the only detail I can give is that the recorded video is "Jerky" ie the actors keep altering the speed at which they are working and the dialogue
doesn't match the facial movement. I am not the only person to have experienced this, as I have seen discussion before. I have no idea why SBS would not have some idea of what is happening.
or why they are not interested, I am not saying it is a fault of SBS I just want to know how to fix it.

I will write its SBS

Many of these try to encode/deploy copy protection so it may be showing up as awful results.

I also have a DVR so I know a little about this as I also have been on design teams for surveillance DVRs. For now we don't install or support any copy protection for the fact it's heavily patented and a PITA to get interoperability. Our clients want to get that video out and to the court room so goals matter.

I fear you are back to SBS to ask them more.
