Slightly disturbing development with my humax (1TB HRD FOX-t2) - it has started making loud disk noises including occasionally a regular tick, tick, tick sounds that I've only ever heard from HDDs suffering a 'click of death'. The disk was never hte quietest but this is much louder read/write noises and a click, click, click. It has happened on several occasions, usually when recording something in HD and watching something else pre-recorded. When it happens, the playback goes to a black screen, the box freezes and shows the message "The channel is scrambled or not available" [even though I am watching a recording, not live TV]. Once everything 'unfreezes', playback continues and I can rewind and watch the bit that froze as if there was no problem. I think that there is a fault with the HDD that causes the box to stutter enough that it freezes playback - has anybody else had this? Is there a disk diagnostics screen hidden anywhere that would give me the SMART status of the disk?
