TiVo recordings stuttering

Our TiVo box has started to make an odd high pitched noise and recordings are now stuttering and occasionally freezing for short periods. It sounds like a failing hard drive to me but is there any way to test it?

Re: TiVo recordings stuttering

Hi Anbjones,

 

Welcome into the Community, It's great to meet a new face Smiley Happy

 

I'm very sorry to hear about the TiVo stuttering on recording and making a strange sound when operating, that can't be fun at all. 

 

My initial concern was for the hard drive in the TiVo and upon my tests, I have found that the hard drive is indeed having a few problems and would need replacing. The replacement would be the entire TiVo so you would need to watch all shows recorded as currently only TV planned recording schedules can be transferred over.

 

I've sent you a 'Private Message', you can find this by clicking on the little purple envelope near the top right of the page.
 
Get back to me when you can.
 
Ben
