Scratchy Noise

I have a TiVo Premier 2 years old with Lifetime Service that is making a scratchy noise. Tonight, it stopped getting channels. After a power On / Off sequence, it seems to be OK. Tomorrow I will try to lube the fan.

Maybe I should get the XL4 with Lifetime? Lifetime is $399 until tomorrow. Then send this one to WeakKnees to be fixed?

All advice appreciated.

Are you sure that it is the TiVo that is the problem, or is the TV going bad, or has your antenna fallen of the house, or do you have corrosion in your connections to your cable or satellite?

I had a problem with Series 2 Tivo that is was doing weird things and responding very slow and did a 'clear and delete' everything and it fixed it.

I don't remember if your model had the bad capacitor problems with them.

With the TiVo making noise, I assumed it was the TiVo.

Maybe the noise is the disk??
