    Last Novemeber I recorded in HD on HBO, Master and Commander. I can't say for sure if we ever tried to watch it all the way through before or not. However, last night at one particular spot it kept freezing up, going blank, stutter a bit, freeze, then eventually did a restart on its own. I did this three times with the same result in the same place. Other old recordings work and I have since made new ones that work fine.

    Any ideas as to the cause?

    Sounds to me like a bad sector on the hard drive. Might be time to get another one just in case.

    I would leave the recording alone and just avoid it so you don't risk trying to record on it again. Other users more familiar with Linux may be able to tell you how to attach the drive to a Linux PC, find and mark it, but I'd avoid it altogether.
