My Tivo box is noisy

My Tivo box is noisy (placed on carpet to minimise the affect) but it rumbles away all the time even when not doing/recording/playing anything - normal or a fault?

Re: My Tivo box is noisy

Yup - Unless it's on Standby the box is buffering the channels it's tuned to in case you want to rewind them.

Depending on your power saving settings this will cease after a while.

We have the same problem, only got them three weeks ago and they are very annoying, the 1tb box is the worse of our two boxes.
