SateTV Hauppauge Colussus Quality Settings not working

My current setup is as follows...

SageTV MediaCenter V7

Cogeco Cable HD Set Top Box

Hauppauge Colossus Capture Card via Component and SPDIF

My setup has been running fantastic for 4 months, suddenly on Friday March 29, 2013 all my recordings doubled in size. As an example a 30 minute HD program consumed 750MB, 60 minute 1.5, 2 hour 3ish and so on. Now 30 minutes is 1.5 GB and the variable bitrate has doubled. Normally they captured at about 3500 kps now it ranges from 7000 - 9000.

I've checked everywhere and cannot determine where the change happened. Also the quality setting SageTv is 100% ignored where in the past I'm quite positive it would respect what I requested. To my understanding component is still analog and thus should allow for quality settings to adhere. In the past if the recording was non HD it would capture accordingly now, it captures at a higher bitrate even though not required for an SD program.

I found a similar post but without any resolution posted.
