HD playback issues - freezeing & no sound

Running HDHomeRun and the new HD Extender. SD works fine. But programs recorded in HD have several problems. Several times they have froze, it show s the last image and I have not been able to get it unstuck unless I leave the video, play something else that has been recorded and then go back.

Another common issue is the loss of sound. Playing the video the sound just quits, the only way to get it back is to rewind the video and then hit play. As I type this it has happen 3 times while watching the news...make that 4 times...

I have yet to play a single HD video that something has not gone wrong.

Anyone els ehaving the same issues? Any ideas?

Nope, I have an HD HomeRun and an HD Extender and am not having videos freeze.

The only issue I'm seeing is that randomly on both SD and HD content both my Hd Extender and MVP will just go to a blank screen. Pressing play gets the video going again right where it cut off.
I'm suspecting that there's either a problem in the latest Sage default STV or one of the STVi's I'm using. I doubt it's the stock STV since there aren't LOTS of reports of the same problem. And the only two STVi's that I'm using on both the HD and MVP extenders are the comskip support for stock STV and the default record padding ones.

Also, the MVP was not exhibiting the problem while running an older STV with STVi's from one of the final pre RC beta's. So the only thing different is the new stock STV and the updated comskip for stock STV. I don't think the default padding one was updated.
As soon as I put those new items in I started to see the video problems randomly/rarely.

As far as audio goes, the only thing I'm seeing is that on some networks and some times I get a half second drop of audio as it goes into/out of HD content at the beginning and end of commercial breaks.
