recorder just stops

I have an older model Phillips DSR 708 (I think it is )and the same thing has happened several times I am recording a show and it just stops all of the sudden.It not only happens to shows that I manually put in but it also happens to shows that I have a Season Pass for .Could my TO DO LIST being really full have something to do with what is going on?

I wouldn't think it's the "To Do" list unless you have overlapping entries. Does that model have a "Recently Deleted" list in "Now Playing"? If so, then try permanently deleting those items. Have you actually benn watching it when it stops recording? One reason for an interrupted recording is a reset which may point to a hard drive issue. The only other think I might recommend is a "Clear and Delete Everything" but then you would lose your recordings and Season Passes.

Go to the to do list and check the recording history and see if it says anything about the shows.

If it is always stopping just a few minutes early it could be the "overlap protection". If it is more than a few minutes then it isn't that.

First I think we have to be sure everyone is using the same definintion of "stop".

I said go to the To Do list, check recording history, and see if it says ANYTHING about those shows where it "stopped".

I also said we need a common definition of "stopped". Let's start with yours.

Do you mean the red recording light went out, and when you go to Now Playing it lists the length as "partial"?

Do you mean the picture on the screen freezes?

Do you mean the TiVo spontaneously reboots?

Sounds like a dying hard drive or power supply.

I saw where I asked you a bunch of questions back in July in an attempt to be of help to you and never got a response.
