Ok so i turned on my tivo yesterday, and it was skipping and stuttering and breaking up to all hell. Rebooted, i'd say 5 times, and it didnt help. When playing a recording, it just goes right to the delete screen, and then i get an error saying it couldnt play back the video.

Ok, so I have a dieing drive. Its a sony SVR-2000. I assume its the 30gb, since i just recently put in a 120gb (a year ago or so). So my question is, is there anything I need to know? Can i use any hd? Does it have to be exactly 30gb? Or anything over 30? I know 120 is the max. Is it possible to image the drive, even though its dieing? Will I have to reformat my additional 120gb as well? Thanks for any suggestions
