    For the last few months my TIVO Series 1 has started freezing on live TV and I can do nothing other than reboot it. It is connected to my Sky+ HD box and when I switch on my TV in the evening I find it has frozen on one of the Sky channels.

    Anyone have any clues as to why it keeps freezing? I have deleted a lot of stuff off just in case it was getting full.

    My first thought would be a bad sector on your hard disc. Does it freeze while recording a programme or just while 'idling'?

    Little can be done to fix it I'm afraid if it's a bad sector. How old is the disc?

    It is freezing while idling. I am not sure of the age of the disk as I purchased the TIVO unit on ebay several years ago.

    If a bad sector is suspected I'd suggest transferring the drive to a PC and running the appropriate manufacturers disk diagnostic software. While these won't fix a failing drive they can at least confirm if there are indeed bad sectors or whether you need to look elsewhere for the cause.
