Possible fixes for DVR error

When fast-forwarding, my DVR jumps to the end of a show. Any solutions besides taking it back to Time Warner?

After two years of working fine -- well, pretty good -- my DVR has decided it doesn't like me fast-forwarding through commercials anymore.
While in fast-forward, whether the speed is five "triangles" or two, the DVR will jump to the end of the show and bring up the "Delete/Don't Delete" message. I then have to rewind the whole thing -- almost 2 hours for the recent "24" premiere -- to where I was. Oddly, the rewind function works fine.
Is there any possible fix for this or do I get to have the immense joy of unhooking the box and taking it back to Time Warner for a replacement?
Thanks for any ideas you may have.
