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?
