    Thanks for all the assistance; it is greatly appreciated. Rather than going the suggested route: I decided to do was I had stated earlier.
    I deleted all partitions (after taking the respective images, of course), then used Partition Master to do a surface scan, on the raw drive. As it came back with zero bad clusters, I thought it must somehow be hardware related.
    I moved the HDD SATA cable onto another motherboard port, and it seemed to have resolved the issue.
    Watching the local TVOne news (the station that had been causing all the buffering concerns), from both the LiveTV stream, as well as the recorded episode, there is no issue, with the HDD running at 0%-1%.
    Time will tell if this is permanent -I've read too many yahoo posts about resolved issues, only for them to resurface. But, as it stands, this seems dead & buried. Such a simple issue, & one that a PC tech would most likely have picked up on, pretty quickly. Still, I have left this thorough posting, in case someone in the future has similar issues.
    So I'll go ahead & class this thread as resolved.

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...
