I know there are a couple threads going right now for similar problems, but I didn't want to hijack anyone's threads. My original Series3 TiVo (original drive and no external drives connected) recently became extremely slow at times, especially when browsing the Now Playing list. If I initiate a transfer of a show from my TiVo Premiere, it becomes incredibly slow in the menu and eventually reboots (regardless of which show I try to transfer). This all seemed to have started when we had a power outage several weeks ago, and this TiVo is not protected by a UPS (although is surge protected by a APC surge protector). Based on suggestions I've read on this board, I've tried all of the KickStart tests, none of which helped. All of the S.M.A.R.T tests reveal no issues found with the hard drive. I cracked open the TiVo, and I did not notice any bulging capacitors or anything out of the norm. I went ahead and ordered a WD10EVDS from Amazon anyway, but I'm questioning if this is going to resolve the issue considering no problems with the drive could be found using the KickStart tests. Any other ideas as to what might cause this behavior? I was also wondering about using WinMFS to transfer the TiVo image over to the new drive. If the original drive is having problems, couldn't the WinMFS copy process copy over a problem TiVo image, thereby bringing the problem over to the new drive? Thanks.
