My new Tivo box makes an unacceptable noise;

The box makes an unacceptable rumbling noise when switched on (the TV does not need to be on), but it disturbs viewing when it is on.

The noise sounds like either the hard disk or the receiving of data...I am not happy with this piece of technology, and if there is no solution to it, the box will have to be returned.

Re: My new Tivo box makes an unacceptable noise;

It will be the HDD buffering whatever channels it is tuned to, it does depend where you have it installed to an extent - I can't hear mine at all.

 

Out of interest, do you have a Samsung or Cisco manufactured unit, 500Gb or 1TB?

Thanks, I thought that might be the case, but the fault is with the box, not my furniture - that's what I'm saying to Virgin...

 

It's a Cisco 500gb

Re: My new Tivo box makes an unacceptable noise;

Hi Simon20,

 

Welcome to the Community and thanks for posting on the Forum. I'm sorry to hear that your TiVo® box is noisy.

 

I have been able to access your account via your Forum details and can see that you have called in and reported this, and that an engineer appointment was arranged for you.

 

Please let me know how the appointment went and if the noisy issue with your TiVo has been fixed.

 

Regards.
