I dont know if that the drive. But you should use winmfs to make a backup of your tivo drive just incase.
I have two TiVoHD units purchased in March, 2008. I replaced the original drives with 1TB WD drives within a couple of months of the original purchase.
One of the units is starting to exhibit some odd behavior. I'm wondering if it is the hard drive. Here are the symptoms:
- Now Playing list often takes a few extra seconds to display
- Some recordings seem to "skip"
- While transferring a show from one TiVo to the other, the receiving TiVo restarted twice while the transfer was in process.
I'd say it seems to work normally about 80% of the time. I've only noticed issues over the last couple of weeks.
Any suggestions for further troubleshooting?
Assuming this is the disk, have the disk replacement process changed since 2008? I used the MFStools from a Linux CD.
