    I just got this thing yesterday and set it up just fine. When my PS3 is in component mode(with the pvr in and everything), my TV loses its video for a few seconds on occasion. However, on my showbiz program(think of it as the capture program that came with my PVR), this video loss isn't shown. Since i'm horrible at explaining the problem, I recorded it with my horrible 3ds camera.

    One thing i've noticed though, is that this doesn't happen at all when I place my PS3 into 480p mode. Every other resolution has the problem. I'm hearing a possible cause is the component cables that came with the PVR since I also hear that they're terrible, but I don't know.
