Hello all,

I recently (one month ago) upgraded my TIVO using the WeaKnees kit. I got the drives (2 WD 120gb drives) myself. Everything was working great (I got the occasional encoding glitch, but nothibg big). However, in the past few days, my unit has started "clicking" intermittently. When it does, the mpeg encoding pauses momentarily and the audio drops out. Does anyone have any recommendations for how I should diagnose the problem?

No easy way to do this. Pull out HDs, backup, and use in PC to test using favorite PC tool. Clicking is a sign of bad HD.
