I have had my Tivo series 2 with lifetime service since 2005 and refuse to replace it with a brighthouse dvr but my Tivo has been acting weird recently and I think its the hard drive. I'll be watching a program and the program lind of pauses itself and then resumes. This is a very annoying issue, nothing displays as if it had actually been paused, it just does it by itself for 1/2 sec to 2 seconds sometimes as much as ten different times during a 1/2 hour show. Also I will tell the tivo to do something like fast forward and I hear the noise the box makes but takes a couple seconds to do it or takes 4-5 seconds to bring up the home screen after hearing the "bing". I've done some research and getting conflicting info as to what a series 2 unit has. Some sites say its an IDE others say SATA, I have a spare sata drive and apparently I can clone the drive but dont have a way to have the old and new drive hooked up at the same time and as per winmfs you need both hooked up at the same time. I'm getting frustrated, can someone please help.
