I have seen this reported by others but not really seen a definitive answer. Our Tivo is set to standby overnight, but at seemingly random times the hard drive spins up. It stays spinning for anything between 30 seconds and 20 minutes and then it spins down, it might do this three or four times a night. There doesn't seem to be any set pattern to it (it can do it at any time when its in standby). The Tivo is in our bedroom and the noise of the harddrive spinning up and down is rather annoying. Other than turning the power completely off is there any was of limiting hard drive activity in standby ?
Anyone at VM able to help with this ? Hard drive spins up maybe 4 - 6 times during the night and stays running for anything between 10 seconds and 30 minutes. Wouldn't be so bad if it didn't start up with a thunk.... Really quite noticeable in a bedroom in the middle of the night.
