    while buffering a recording that is still recording, it will jump to live tv. happened about 10 times today while watching the NFL games...Just started a day or two ago, had the unit for about 18 months with no issues thus far. Tried unplugging, CS tried resetting, problem still happens...what to do?

    I have the unit up on blocks so air can pass all around well.

    Sounds like a possible hard drive problem.

    The steps you can try to correct this are the hard reset or if plugged into a surge protector bypass this. If this continues we would need to replace this. You can also save your recordings to an EHD as a back up.

    need to buy TiVo patent and return to proved technology what works well for trick modes: do index file by I-frames, not the stupid each 0.2 sec index
