    This just started happening to me today. I'll be watching something and all of a sudden my the screen will freeze for like 30 seconds and then change to a black screen that says Welcome! Powering Up! It will stay there for like a minute and then more words will come that says something like "only a couple minutes left." Then the TiVo animation will come on for about a minute and it will direct me back to the TiVo central. It has done this during TiVo'd shows as well as normal TV shows. I have turned it on and off, and unplugged it, but now it keeps doing it. It just happened 9 times in a row. I tried calling the help line but it was extremely fuzzy and I could not hear it for some odd reason. Any help?

    Sounds like your hard drive is dying.
