500gb TiVo box rumbling!!


I have just upgraded all of my service and part of that was to put a TiVo box in my bedroom but ever since its gone in it makes an awful rumbling sound, whilst in standby and when it's playing. I've tried padding it etc but it makes no difference. It's only been in a couple of months, does it mean I have a faulty box?

Mine's only a couple of weeks old and it sounds like rain pattering on a plastic box. It's in the living room though so it doesn't bother me.

Hi Zzrangel30,

A warm welcome to our community Smiley Happy

It may not necessarily be a faulty box.  TiVo® does to an extent will make a low level buzzing sound the same as any Desktop/Laptop device that has a hard drive.  

If there is any buzzing or vibrating sounds that is can be heard above normal viewing levels when the TV is turned on then we can look at this further.

Given you have already tried cushioning the feet of the box on the surface this is a good way to reduce the sound of the vibrating.  

Let me know how you get on.  We're here to help if you need us.
