Hard Drive Problem?

My TiVo (stock RCA 40 hour - no mods) has been freezing up in the middle of playback and then rebooting. This had happened a couple of times in the past, but happened twice last night and again tonight. I bought the unit about 3 months ago, haven't even checked to see if it's still under warranty. I've been thinking about upgrading the unit anyway, but obviously, I'd rather not lose what I've got saved on there. Any suggestions?

If you act quickly before the hard drive dies totally, you can upgrade and preserve your existing recordings at the same time. Check out the upgrade resources in the Tivo Upgrade Center Forum here. Look especially at Hinsdale's and Weaknee's posts for step-by-step instructions.

Does anybody have any thoughts about what it could be besides a hard drive problem? It happened again this morning, and it was on live TV rather than playback. I understand it's really always on playback, playing the recorded buffer, but there is a difference. This is really making me mad. What is the warranty on these things anyway?

Most brands have a 90-day warranty, but I thought the RCA's was longer. It does sound like the hard drive to me. Note that "Live TV" is still playback - just playing from the buffer.
