Upgrade the original hard drive, then added a second.
Has worked great for years!! It is an addiction...
Yet now, the video is all jumpy. Even after cold booting it, the intro video stops...a second passes, then continues to play. Video recorded on the unit does the same. The response time is also noticeable slower for moving through the menus.
I have dusted out the unit and double checked all my connections. I know that is sort of stupid, but desperation is a stinky cologne.
Do you think that it could be the drives? Maybe reformatting and imaging them?
Or is it a board/hardware problem? Or should I just quit being a j** and get a new Series 2 TiVO?

You could test the drives using the manufacturers (or other) diagnostic software.
If it's a hardware problem, it's likely the power supply. Those are generally not expensive (look on ebay) and are relatively simple to replace.
