    I've had a Series 2 80hr refurb for 3 years or so. Has worked great. However, lately we've noticed a 2 second stutter at the start of recorded shows. This was intermittant at first, but at this point it seems to be happening at the start of every show.

    I realize this probably means the drive is going, but what doens't make sense to me is... Why does it ONLY happen at the start of a show? It seems to happen within the first 2 minutes (key plot point for shows like Jimmy Neutron) and lasts for 2-3 seconds. Never happens later in the show.

    Does anyone know is something special (heavy processing) would be going on with the Tivo OS in the first couple minutes of a show?
