My Tivo Box in noisy

I was recently upgraded to Tivo, when i'd called with a problem with my broadband. I'd previously had no problem with my Samsung box. The noise from from the Tivo box was loud drumming, an engineer called out and swapped it for another. This new one, although it is a bit quieter, also drums. An engineer called out again last week and told me that i must have sensitive hearing and these boxes do make some noise. I appreciate some noise, but i'm fed up with it. It's really disturbing throughout the night and can be heard over my television. I would much prefer my original box back, but was told that I can't and have to keep the Tivo box. I would really appreciate your advice. Thanks

Buy some rubber feet, mats for it. Mine is still damn loud but this does help a little bit.

Re: My Tivo Box in noisy

I've tried putting rubber and felt underneath. It's slightly better, but still really annoying. Seriously considering cancelling my contract now.
I have this box in my bedroom and it's not really the best place for a noisy piece of equipment 😞

Re: My Tivo Box in noisy

They do chug chug chug chug away. Mine appears to be getting worse and when not using it, I put it into standby mode. Does the sound damped down if you press the top of the tivo box?

Re: My Tivo Box in noisy

It makes no difference if i press the top. If i cover it, it helps, but don't want to Overheat it.
I ended up switching it off totally last night, to get some sleep.
