Constantly getting juddering playback on recorded show on TiVo box at the moment. I can no longer pause live TV either as it slows appallingly and I have to move to live streaming to get any watchable coverage.
I was an early adopter of TiVo and this is one of the original boxes.
Thank you for coming back and posting your comment on the TiVo, I'm sorry that the recordings are juddering. I've been into the box and I can see that the signal levels on the TiVo are fluctuating beyond what we'd like them to be. While this may be looking like the hard drive, (which there certainly is a problem), the live channel can attribute to this partially. I would recommend an engineer to come and this will most likely result in a box swap, so watching the shows first would be best.
