    Has anyone noticed a white-black bar at the top edge of SD recordings. It almost looks like a degraded VHS tape(to a very small degree). In the interest of full disclosure, I am using TivoDecode to decode the files. Is this what's causing the problem?

    you're seeing the first 5 or so scan lines that have closed captioning and other data encoded in them. normal TVs and monitors put those lines off-screen in the 'overscan' area.
