My Tivo works fine for days and then the sound drops out and the picture goes blocky and erratic, does anyone know the cause and more importantly whats the cure? By the way its a standard PVR10UK model connected to a Thompson freeview box.
Two possibilities: (1) you have occasional dodgy Freeview reception (2) TiVo's disk is starting to fail.
Cure: if the former, possibly an aerial upgrade. If the latter, buy a new disk and copy the current one to it (following one of the guides hanging around here) and put the new one into TiVo, before the current one fails.

I have two Freeview boxes though and In suffer the same problems with both. If I change channel when the sound first drops out it comes back on again but only if i change channels on the tivo not just the freeview box.
I have heard their was a problem with nicam on some early boxes, is this true?
