Will "pausing" TIVO for long periods harm it?

    Even if you have it paused, it's still writing the output of both tuners to their respective 30 minute buffers, so the drive heads are not remaining above the same spot.

    The frozen image you see on the screen is what's in the video output buffer being sent over and over again until something else is put into the output buffer.
