My TIVO freezes when playing back a recording

About 10 days ago my TIVO as started freezing on playing back a recording I have rebooted a few times but to no avail it still won't play back a recording completely 

The only way around it is to stop the recording, go back to live TV, then back to the recording and start from were I left off, this is really a pain

the TIVO is one of the originals so it's about 4+ years old I suspect a disc problem but just guessing any help would be appreciated 

Hold on tight to your Dreams...(ELO)

Hi kenoliver,

Thanks for coming by Smiley Happy

I'm sorry to hear that you're getting pixelated picture on your recorded playback.  I will be happy to help check this out for you.

Looking at the box remotely I am pleased to say all signal/power levels are fine.  I can see some errors on the hard drive status.  I will arrange for an engineer to call round and get this sorted for you.

I will send the details in a private message, look for the envelope icon above.

Yes very probably your hard drive has had it. Phone for an engineer
