Tivo freezes at a specific point on a certain commercial

OK, I did a search and did not find this specific problem. I've documented my previous issues with a fairly new Tivo in this thread, but this seems to be a separate issue.

I'm watching a game on Big10HD, and the TiVo freezes every time a specific commercial comes on (GMC commercial where it says, "let it snow, let it snow, etc."

I've gone through the DVR diagnostics and everything seems ok by my untrained eye, at least compared to the other tuner where it's working fine.

I can fix the problem by changing the channel and then changing it back, but of course that defeats the purpose of actually recording something.

I'll call TiVo tomorrow, but does anyone have any ideas?

Some philosophy: Sh_t happens!

Longer version: Sh_t happens with a TiVo HD (or S3)!

Don't mean to be flip, but this sounds like just one of those glitches that happen because the TiVo is not robust to digital signal stream glitches. Unless this happens all the time, you're probably better off to just move on.

Have you called TiVo and reported what you are seeing?

Some input data is just toxic to the HD. It can be as specific as certain content on a particular channel, and even that can vary based on cable provider.
