My analysis was right in that the problem turned out to be a DB corruption issue. A nice fellow posted on his blog a repair script that did the trick. Now I just need to figure out why I am getting "video frame buffering failed too many times" after running the live tv for some random period of time.
As a bonus though, the audio sync issue that I was having with the HVR-1600 is fixed.
