    We have been having the exact same problem. We updated with a "rollup" and it got slightly better, but it eventually starts it up again.

No this has no effect. Usually jittery audio is hard drive or resource related as it is writing data and outputting data at the same time.
one reolution may be to scale down the quality of the recording to see if that helps.
Lastly check for updated audio/capture card drivers

I cant get my blu-ray home theatre system to work when watching tv. Help please


I assume you mean for hearing TV-related audio. You don't mention any models here so generic advice is what you get.

Consider where the TV-related audio originates (Hint: it may not be the TV, but could be a Cable / SAT Box). If so, THAT is the source you need to draw audio from. Connect the highest form of whatever compatible audio output it has to your HTS and choose it when you want to watch TV. Connect the basic audio from the Box to the TV if you want to skip using the HTS for sound.

Windows Media center recorded TV playback


Some possible causes can be system heat causing the video card to freeze. Sometimes it can also be related to the video driver or MPEG2 decoder. Make sure to use the right decoder and filter for the video playback.
