Roamio Pro very slow at times

Over the past month my Roamio Pro has become very slow. This happens primarily when going into a folder to view the list of episodes. In the past this loaded in about 2 or 3 seconds. Now you have to wait about 10 to 20 seconds at times to see the listed of recorded shows in a folder.

I've also had several issues where i would play back a show and just get a black screen. I would have to go back into the Tivo list and start the show again.

The last issue is most of the time I have to setup a One Pass from the Tivo website. It seems 75% of the time I get a spinning circle if I try to setup one from the Tivo itself. This has been happening for a few months.

I don't always have these issues, it's hit or miss. Once I start watching a program video and audio quality are perfect so I was hoping to rule out any issues with the hard drive.

Here are things I have looked at. In the now playing list hard drive is about 14% full. I do have Tivo Suggestions turned on and wondered if perhaps that is really filling up my drive and causing these sluggish moments?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Rebooting didn't help... I decided to delete the entire Tivo Suggestions folder (460 items). It seems to be back to normal now. Apparently if your suggestions folders gets too large it can impact the speed.

If you have alot of recordings, you can off-load them to a PC using Tivo Desktop or PyTivo and put them back when its time to watch.
