TiVo playback and recordings freezing and pixellating
Recently I've noticed that some of my recordings and even playback on time delay the picture stops and freezes/pixelates. The FFWD & RWD buttons don't work immediately & then start working. For example I recorded Little Women NY on Lifetime last night. At 21 mins in it froze. Occasionally it would try to resume but eventually went forward by itself to 31 mins. I am currently writing this while the box reboots itself. I was watching Project Runway on the same channel & the picture just froze. I was unable to do anything & the TiVo box eventually rebooted itself. I also recorded Russell Howard 's Stand Up Central last night. During playback it froze twice but resumed playback more or less straight away. Can you advise why this is happening. I think I got the TiVo as they came out so not sure if it's at the end of it's shelf life. My hard drive is always in the upper 90's% full but it can't be that because why have the HDD space to play with in the first place & trust me when I say my box is always in the upper 90's% full.

Welcome back into the Community and thanks for posting
I am sorry to read about the recent interruptions on the TV services, I've been able to look into the box and your hard drive isn't responding to my tests, indicating a fault. This would require an engineer to help adjust this and bring this back to a normal operation, or if not, a box swap.
