    I have a bolt vox, and when watching the disney channel live it is fine. But watching shows that were recorded earlier the same day it freezes and pixelates etc. I think Nick jr does the same thing... Haven't tested all channels.

    Any ideas what would cause it? I got the box new from tivo in July.

    The way you describe indicates a hard drive problem. Since no problems when watching live. I would check other channels, and diagnostics screen showing channel signal strengths. Also might want to watch live, at the SAME TIME record what you are watching live. Then compare. Comparing earlier recordings to current live would not necessarily be a valid comparison. You did not mention the model of the Vox, would be good to know as would know the drive being used.

    Mine started doing that a few months ago, and my hard drive finally failed a couple of weeks ago.
