I'd recommend rebooting your box if you've not already, as a precaution.
If this continues (and I suspect it will), it'd be useful to make sure it's not happening on live TV. If it's not, then it's potentially indicative of a problem with your hard drive. This will only get worse over time, and I'd recommend reporting the fault to VM via the 150 route.
