Seems as if my box is going crazy lately, or the HD is going.

Anyway to do anything about this without calling them?
Occasionally, when I use Double Play, one of the channels will freeze/pixelate but if I go to the other channel and then back all is good. I have the HR34-700 model. Usually it works great.

This is all on recordings on the DVR. It will freeze and I have to FF to get past the mark where it is frozen. Happened on quite a few of my recordings from the past couple of days.

normally a couple hours, if the drive is dying - days :(

That's why I did recommend (if you can connect SATA cable to the drive) use MHDD to take out SMART table first, then run some tests what you will control: short, long, etc
