Intermittent Operational Pause

Post by SunnysideUK »

I've been experiencing an intermittent pause/delay in operation for a few months now.
The delay when it occurs (and when I notice it) lasts for about 12-15 seconds.
A blank dialogue background/box may be shown for the period depending on what function is selected, such as the EPG. I'm using MyStuff.

Problem is I can't make it happen on request. I have set the HDD to spin down on no use (no time shifting) and have done so for many years.
The HDD appears OK. No other symptoms, recoding/playback OK with or without this delay.
I usually notice the delay when interactive using the EPG or Archive function (as I just did)
PSU voltages appear OK with little ripple.

Any ideas?
