    I have a 2 year old HR10-250 that is acting strange and I wonder if someone can give me a lead on whats wrong. The problem is some kind of drop out or interference, you can see the digital picture distort into litttle boxes and the sound quits too. It seems to happen on most any channel. I have a second HR10-250 on the same antenna and it is perfect. I tried doing a complete reset and that didnt help. Sometimes it will work perfect for an hout, sometimes it fails every few minutes.

    Could be a hard drive problem. Try swapping your two Tivos to see if the problem stays with the "bad" Tivo or in its room. If the problem stays with the "bad" Tivo, then suspect a hard drive. If not, the something is wrong the cables/connectors/multiswitch feeding that room.

    You can get additional information about replacing/upgrading your Tivo's drive here ....
