Could my hard drive be still failing if netflix has no pixilation?

I have an HD Tivo hooked to an OTA antenna outside. Everything has been great for 3 years. Lately, I've been experiencing quite a bit of pixilation on my 1tb hard drive that I installed three years ago. It happens once a minute or so watching live tv or recorded events (but not on all channels when watching live tv). I'm running the tivo kickstart code 54 overnight. I was wondering if Netflix does not have any pixilation, can I rule a hard drive problem out?


My next steps are to:
-test hard drive with western digital diagnostic tools in addition to checking the coax cable/splitter outside.
-Put original HD back into tivo and see if this occur
-if none of above cures problem and HDs are good replace the coax cable and splitter

-Any other options or ideas?

Thank you

Since Netflix is a streaming service, it does not even go on to the drive, just straight out to the Tv.

Continue to troubleshoot as you are. Could it be possible that your antenna got mis-aligned or is it permanently fixed?

Also, check the power supply in the Tivo for capacitor plague.
