Tivo box freezing on recordings

While watching a  recording I was fast forwarding a program, when I pressed play the screen froze. Tried pressing fast forward again and nothing.  Live tv was also a blank screen when I tried to watch that instead. I therefore had to do a reboot.  This seemed to clear the problem.  Has this happened to anyone else.  It only happened the once but I'm concerned it could happen again.  Don't want to call VM helpline and be on hold for hours if it is just a one off.  Any help would be grateful

Re: Tivo box freezing on recordings

Can you watch live TV channels ok?

If you only have problems when you're pausing, rewinding or watching recorded programmes, this is indicative of the box's hard drive having issues. They're only likely to get worse over time, and possibly eventually cause an outright failure.

Personally I'd call it in ASAP, but it's upto you if you want to "keep an eye". HDD problems tend not to resolve themselves, let's put it that way.
