Hi I have had my Tivo box for a couple of years and recently when playing back recorded programmes or paused TV the picture and sound jumps and freezes, I have also had a few failed recordings.
Is this likely to be signs of an impending hard disk failure?
Very possibly yes. I'd phone on for an engineer.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your TiVo®.
I've located your account and can see you have a technician booked. Let me know how the appointment goes and give me a shout if you need anything else.
