Sunday before last or early Monday morning my four year old Bolt experienced an "event". I am experiencing extreme pixelation and tiling on the upstairs Minis and downstairs on the main Bolt. I thought I had a cable problem but called to troubleshoot it over chat.
It appears I have a harddrive issue. As long as I am watching live I have no problems. If I pause or rewind, the pixelation returns. The other odd thing is recordings that happened before the event play normally, recordings after the event are not. It's a really strange problem, any ideas?
Edit: So I get home do an experiment. On Charter Spectrum, all the HD channels are high tiered. 702 is ABC, 705 is Fox, etc. I tune to the regular low tier channels, such as channel 2 for ABC and the problem goes away, it is a cable problem, most likely the cable card or a signal issue. I wanted to get this figured out because I have a new Bolt Vox sitting on the table ready to go. I'm going to call Spectrum again.
