    intermittent blank (black, soundless) spots are showing up in some of the recorded shows. this is making me nervous I'm going to miss something good, or the box is dieing. It's a series2 and only 1.5 years old.

    any advice on how to fix this?

    comcast recently made our building start to use cable boxes to receive their service. not sure if this is pertinent.

    Any particular channel? Or all of them?
    How long is the blackout?
    Do you see it if you happen to be watching live TV?

    I havent been able to pin it on one channel. i can name 3 it has happened on off the top of my head. the blackouts usually last under a minute but occasionally longer.

    it happened once while watching live tv. the end of rescue me was blanked for 10 or 12 minutes. one reason I suspect it's the tivo is when it happened I watched the end of the show on my other tv which has no tivo box. I guess if I watched more live tv I'd have a better set of evidence.
