Try to burn using another show on the "now playing" list. Also, try using a different brand of blank dvd. I have had the error at times. However, there was no need to make any hard drive replacement. Good luck.
I agree with WML1950... I wouldn't be so quick to say that the burner is shot. I have a Humax with a burner. I will occasionally get this error. I seem to get it less frequently with good quality blank DVDs (Sony, TDK). I got it once when trying to burn a specific program. I could burn other saved programs, but not that one. I gave up and deleted that specific program. I rebooted the TiVo and have been burning fine since them.
