Recording Setanta on a DSR530

The members of my family are huge soccer fans. We subscribe to Setanta, Gol and FSWC and we often record games on the 530. Unfortunately, the picture quality of the the recordings on these channels is almost unwatchable. The picture stutters and "blocks" appear all over the screen. Other channels record just fine. Is the poor quality a function of the feed from Setanta/Gol/FSWC? Or, is there anything I can do to improve the quality of the recordings?

I should note that other SD channel recordings look fine on the DSR530. And the live feeds from Setanta/Gol/FSWC look okay.

I assume these are SD channels and perhaps don't get the bandwidth of other channels. A proper setup of the TV can often help - reducing sharpness, turning off edge enhancements, not using "torch mode", etc. See the following post on the topic of SD PQ.
