For the sake of clarity, are you looking at cable and premium channel shows, or network television shows? Cable cos cannot put the flags on network channels, as I understand it, so that might be a clue as to the source of your woes... I used to have TWC in NC (with the tuning adapter and all) until about a year and a half ago, and I rarely had blocked programming when I went to transfer. I recorded mostly network, but some cable shows as well (south park, star wars: clone wars and robot chicken, among cable channel shows), and never had an issue. Never had premiums, but those would normally be flagged, I'd think.
