    I have a premier xl .had it since day one without a problem now during playback it pauses it freezes and sometimes it is normal.I have the extended warranty so I called tivo and they said try this try that. nothing helped so now they want me have fios come in and check the "quality" of the signal.tonight while watching a recorded show it freezes too much to watch it so I switched to live tv.now that is freezing on and off so I switched over to my fios stb and no problems. Do I have a bad tivo?

    Video freezing can be a sign of hard drive problems. Run Kickstart 54 to test the hard drive. See the page below:

    http://www.weaknees.com/tivo-kickstart-codes.php

    Choose "Run S.M.A.R.T. tests" to start the testing.

    If you see something like "FAIL 7", then your hard drive is bad.
