Dead drive

I appear to be having a hard drive problem with my Hughes SD Tivo. The system will randomly either freeze, or when I turn on the TV the screen is black. When I unplug the unit and plug it back in, the unit will work for a while (the time varies) but then freeze again.

Does this sound like a hard drive issue? Also, the tivo has been upgraded with a 120MB add on drive. If I buy a new unit, can I move the added drive into the new unit?

Thank you for your advice.

It could be.

You can add the 120 GB drive to a new DVR, but will have to prepare it with blesstivo.
