Hi thanks for getting back to me. It seems to be happening every time we watch something that has been recorded.
The recording seems to play ok at the beginning but then at various times whilst we are watching the recording the picture breaks up, stutters or just freezes.
I don't know if its relevant but we have just re watched something we recorded over Christmas and when we originally watched it everything played perfectly but tonight it again stuttered and froze.
We have recently moved the TiVo box into the front room rather than the back room, but have checked that all the wires are tight, maybe moving it has caused the issue as we can't recall it freezing when it was in the back room.
Hope you can help. Could an engineer come and check it out?
Thanks for getting back to me, it's certainly a strange one. Would you be able to plug the set top box back to where it was initially just to test it? I'd like to run some tests to compare the results too.
As this has been happening for a little while, I'm guessing it's happening over multiple channels?
Hi Craig, i will try and set it up in the old room ready for Tuesday evening if that's ok for you to test it. Yes it is happening on multiple channels unfortunately. Sometimes watching the recording is unbearable. I finally sat down to watch the final race of the Isle of Man TT races (Itv4) and the recording just kept jumping so half the race was just a blur of fuzzy screen, almost like watching it on fast forward?
I'm really sorry that the fault has been continuing for you.
I've run some further checks on the TiVo® and like when Craig run the testing all the power levels are fine, however we are now seeing an issue with the Hard Drive, so I'd like to look into booking a technician to call out and investigate further for you.
I've sent you a private message saying how we can move on with this. If you look to the top left of this page you'll see a red envelope icon, click on that and you'll see my message.
We also had this problem and an engineer came out and replaced our box which was about 2 years old, we were told it was a harddrive failure problem, 2 months after having our box replaced the new box is now doing the same .. Grrrr.
it is always when viewing recorded programs, doesnt matter what channel they were recorded from. Sometimes you can fast forward through the freeze point but other times it just stays frozen.
