hi all just wondered if anyone else has this problem ..my TiVo box has developed a taste for displaying some of my recordings with a lot of pixilation on the screen and sometimes the picture will be ok and the sound will come and go ,,its not all recordings just some ,not on a certain channel but random things I have recorded I have 100 meg broadband so I know its not a bandwidth problem . so just wondering if someone else has this problem
It may be a faulty CATV tuner causing this issue, or that the internal hard disk is failing.
The issue is nothing to do with your Broadband. TV channels on cable are carried in broadcast (DVB-C2) format, so your box is receiving all 200+ channels all the time & just selects the ones it requires for you to view/record.

yes it is still happening it start a couple of weeks ago. and it seems to getting more often now .there appears to be no single channel it happens on, it may be any channel we have selected to record so any advice or info you could share would be gladly accepted
