Picture and sound not in sync

Our Freeview unit in playback will often produce a very pixelated picture then the sound and picture go out of sync. My fix at present is to stop the replay then start it again. The sound and picture will be in sync again but this can happen several times in the course of an hour or two viewing.It concerns me that it might be the HDD or the unit dying. Does anyone have any advice on the matter?See More
