Noisey Tivo box

I recently had a new Tivo box installed and it's making a noise similar to a PC hard drive when it's working hard. It's very annoying as I can hear it in the background as I watch tv.

Re: Noisey Tivo box

Hi Barrsy69,

 

Thank you for your post and sharing this with the Team and Community Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry to read about the noisy box and that it's affecting your viewing, I'd like to help.

 

When the box is making noise, is this while you're recording a show? In the past there have been comments mentioning that if the feet of the box are on something soft, this can help.

 

Finally, can you tell me if the noise is considerably less when you pick it up?

 

Take care and welcome to the Community Smiley Happy

 

Ben

Re: Noisey Tivo box

The box makes the same noise regardless whether I'm recording or not and it makes no difference if I pick it up. Maybe if I throw it in the bin it might help !!!!!
