Advertisements So my premiere has been wonky lately. recordings get messed up a day later. meaning, a day later after a show has been recorded, the show freezes, a few seconds later it comes back. you see some pixilation. so i figured it was a signal problem (OTA only), its not. ive seen the show live while recording and its fine. i watch it a day later, its messed up. I transfer the show to my THD and it plays fine but i still see where the pixelation is "inserted" but it doesnt lock up the HD. I also recorded the same show on the THD at the same time to rule out signal problems, i did. its the premiere, i figured it was the drive. Now i do a kickstart 54, the drive failed the test. so now i do a kickstart 57. the powering up screen comes up, kickstart 57, and now the tivo is sitting there. nothing on the screen, the green light is on and it wont respond to remote comands, the yellow light wont blink and it didnt show me any menus like it did for KS 54. did it just crap itself? or is it doing its thing and it will take a long time to come back? also, if this drive is totally borked because i am seeing this problem. can it still be cloned and expanded with mfstools? or should i just go to dvrdude? thanks.
