Playback Freezing on HR24-500 - DirecTV

My receiver began freezing up on all playbacks a few weeks ago. Live tv works perfectly fine, but any and all shows that are recorded will play for 20-30 seconds then freeze for 5-10 seconds then continue the cycle. I've had this receiver for several years and I'm wondering if it's starting to experience hard drive failure? I've reset the receiver several times, ran diagnostic checks and nothing will remedy the issue.
