    I replaced my old Tivo with a new Humax DVD from Weaknees. The old one was freezing and I assumed it was the HD. I have also added a continual UPS power supply.

    The new one worked fine for a few days, but now it is intermittently freezing also.

    1. COuld the ethernet connection be a cause. I have recently added a new switch (after the problem occurred) so I don't think it is the switch, but I don't see how this could be the problem.
    2. Any other suggestions?

    If you are using a cable box, double-check it's not the box. I had a cable box that failed and its symptoms looked just like a TiVo HD failure.
