    Hi - I haven't been able to find anything on point about this, but surely I'm not the only person to experience this. A TivoHD with a WD 1TB internal drive and no other problems. Randomly, but maybe once every 30 minutes of program, there's a single 1-2 second audio dropout. It's always repeatable (i.e., if you backup, it happens again), and the video is fine. Rebooting the TiVo doesn't help, and I really don't know what else to try.

    Is there perhaps some way to rebuild the disc to have it detect any new bad sectors or something? Or maybe I need to replace it? It's just getting to the verge of being annoying so I'm willing to put some effort into a sure fix.

    Thanks very much!

    Have you tried watching live TV, preferably using a different tuner (not in the TiVo)? Why are you so sure that the dropouts are not signal problems?

    Well, I have FiOS, and TiVo says signal strength is strong, and when I switched from COMCAST to FiOS a few months ago the issue didn't change at all.
