If you're convinced it's your hard drive, you must return the unit as defective.
However, if you're on a cable system and your friend lives a block or two away from you and has the same cable provider, any number of components (boosters, etc.) in the cable company's feed line...to your
house...could be having a problem, or even the line from your feed pole into your house, or feedback from other components within your cable system inside your house.
If you're both OTA, using the same type antenna pointed in exactly the same direction with the same azimuth and clear-view, or if you're both on Sat with the same provider, then you might
have a HDD problem.
If the HDD has a bad spot or whatever, it will probably happen again sometime, but even then, it could still be one of the above and not the HDD.
