Advertisements About 6 months ago, I bought a refurb Series 3 TiVo (not a TiVo HD, but the older, original Series 3) and immediately had Lifetime service put on it. And for the majority of that six months, it worked perfectly. In the last week, it's started giving me fits. Sometimes it freezes up (while watching recorded shows), and I can get it to start again by fast-forwarding and rewinding. Other times it freezes and I can't do anything, and after a little while it solves the problem itself and completely reboots. Note: this one seems to be happening more and more - it happened twice this morning already while I was getting ready for work. Other times it seems to be working properly except when I try to fast-forward and it responds VERY sluggishly. Now yes, the obvious thing is to call TiVo technical support and get this fixed/replaced under warranty (which I plan to call about tonight). But I figured I'd post on here and see what I'm in for - whether it'd be an easy fix that they'll just tell me to do over the phone that would fix it, or whether I'll need to plan on sending it back to TiVo for a repair, and being without a TiVo for a period of time. I'm also curious what period of time to expect the repair to take (roughly, of course). Edit: This is a Series 3 refurb (lifetime) with two cable cards (both MCards) installed, hooked up to Comcast cable, and hooked to my network via a TiVo wireless adapter.
