Re: Buzzing sound from TiVo box.

Hi there bravowinordie,

 

ashdh is correct in asking what the TiVo® is touching.

 

Sometimes the unit that it is placed on, such as, a glass cabinet can cause the equipment to make a more noticeable buzzing noise.

 

Make sure that the TiVo® is positioned on a flat surface.

 

You could also try using anti-vibration materials such as a foam/cork/rubber mat (available from most discount stores) to rest your TiVo® on, ensuring the material used doesn’t obstruct any ventilation holes.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Nat_J

Re: Buzzing sound from TiVo box.

Hi

had a new tivo box last week (cisco), hard drive vibrated and pulsed, was very noisy through the wood cabinet.

sounded like someone had music on next door and you could hear the beat.

Engineer came out and changed the box for a samsung one, much better, hardly any sound at all now.

Also the samsung box is much lighter that the other Cisco one
