Oh please, I hope not, I have a huge backlog of stuff to watch... Over the last couple of days I have noticed that when I am watching a previously recorded show on Tivo the picture will sort of pause and then take a second or two to come back to normal. During this time there is no audio output. I was worried but didn't do anything. Now my girlfriend told me that she was watching live TV through Tivo and it did the same thing. Is my hard drive dying? The unit is a series 2, but older, about 4-5 years old. I decided to check here before calling Tivo but will they replace the unit or am I pretty much screwed? I am going to be bummed if I am since I was planning on getting one the fancy Series 3 sometime this year!
