TiVo recordings breaking up

I'm having problems playing back recent recordings - the picture is freezing/ jumping back/ going black and pixelating . I've tried restarting the box to no avail - any ideas?

If it's happening in live tv too then you have a signal issue. 

If recordings only then your hard drive is probably dying. 

Bith issues require a phone call and engineer.

Thanks for that. It's just recordings, so looks like the hard drive then.

Re: TiVo recordings breaking up

Hi Morty,

 

A warm welcome to the community Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry to hear that your recordings aren't playing back very well at the moment.  I can see you have an engineer calling round to get this sorted for you Smiley Happy

 

I hope all goes well on the day, it would be great if you could let me know how you get on afterwards please keep me posted.

 

Due to the nature of the fault it is possible the box will be replaced.  IF that's the case then sadly whilst we're unable to save the recordings, you can copy over details relating to Series Links, WishLists and Thumbs Ratings.  Instructions on how to do this can be found here.

 

This will save you a heap of time re-setting them up once the new box is installed.

 

Please let me know how you get on, I'm here to help if you need me. Smiley Happy

 

Collette.
