TiVo - freezing so much I can't watch anything
Been reading many of the posts here but not certain if what I'm encountering is common.
Here's what I have: Series 3 HD TiVo Lifetime Service, running Verizon Fios with two cable cards. About 4 years old, using external WD hard drive and wireless adaptor. Has run flawlessly until about a month ago.
Problem: Started occasional freeze and reboot during playback of recorded programs. Did this once, then again a few days later, then to maybe once a day. At first it seemed to freeze at the same point during the recorded program. The past few days the issue got much worse and yesterday could not watch though a half hour recorded program without a reboot and now can’t even watch live TV without it almost instantly rebooting if you rewind, fast forward or pause.
What I've done:
Unplugged and restarted.
Checked all cables.
Ran kickstart 57 & 58. Stated it installed a service update.
Run the kickstart 54 and both internal and external drives passed the smart test.
I even tried divorcing the external HD but no good.
Right now I have it running kickstart 54 for the long internal drive test.
Any advice or suggestions would be welcome!
