    I have had as many as 12 series 2 DirecTivos over the years and I have had many types of failures (hard drive, tuner) but I have never experienced a playback problem. I am getting what appears to be "interference" which causes a show to have vertical, slanted lines. It is most noticeable in dark backgrounds. It looks like it might be a "bad broadcast signal" (say on a OTA) station but there is nothing wrong with the recording itself. I have copied a show to another DirecTivo Series 2 and it plays fine. I have removed it from the room where I have it in case there was an source of the "interference" and tried it on two different tvs and it still has the problem. It is a problem for both RF and composite video outputs. i purchased this machine in May 2017 and it was great at first but then this happened. Do I have any hope of fixing or saving this Tivo? Your help is much appreciated.
