Signs of problems to come?

So I upgraded my new Phillips Series 2 this weekend, had a little bit of trouble:

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-v...threadid=182144

but with the help of a helpful board member (thanks Robert S), I got it upgraded and it now reports 144 hours of capacity.

It worked fine last night, but it is starting to develop problems. When I hit the Tivo button, I get the first menu, but with the background of the tv show I was watching, instead of the blue screen. And when I was watching a recorded SFU tonight, it just froze after the first 15 minutes and I couldn't FF or anything. I can rewind and stuff, but can't FF past that point.

When I first started it up after the upgrade, it still showed the previously recorded movies before I upgraded, but they wouldn't play obviously because I just preserved the settings and not the recordings.

Not a problem, I just deleted them, however I am 99% sure that the first two movies I recorded after the upgrade had the same problem. I say 99% because I think I recorded those movies after the upgrade. I deleted them and have since watched a couple of recorded movies w/o problems, but these small little problems seem like troubled waters ahead to me.

What does the board think?

I would think your new drive is faulty. You need to identify the failing drive (it's very likely to be the new one, but it would be nice to have some evidence for that) and use dd or dd_rescue to clone the failing drive on to a replacement.

You should probably check the cables first, though.

You think? That would suck. I guess at least I could take it back and get the same drive for cheaper at CompUSA.

Start by running diagnostics on it to see if it really is faulty.
