After recently replacing my TiVo box due to a defect with the hard drive, I've found that the new box is very noisy and distracting. This wasn't an issue with my previous box! Fix one thing and get a different problem.....it's driving me crazy - thud thud thud thud thud all the time.
I'm really sorry to learn about the problems you're experiencing with your TiVO box.
I've been able to locate your account using your forum information and I've tested the set top box from our end for you. We're not detecting any issues at the moment and the hard drive is reporting as good since the last reboot, which I can see was pretty recently.
Hi Craig. It's still the same. As we have young children we tend to have the tv on quite quiet so that we don't wake them. It was never an issue on the previous box, which suggests that there could be a problem with the box or it's a different manufacturer of box and their hard drives are noisier? It doesn't surprise me that you check doesn't show any issues as it's the workings of the unto that are noisy but possibly not defective.
Thank you for coming back so soon and letting us know
I am sorry to see that this noise is still there, I would recommend taking a look to see where the box is placed, in the past, other have mentioned placing something soft under the feet has helped. If you find this is now help and that the box is still noisier than is required to play the sound at a reasonable level, we'll look into this a bit more.
I've had a look again and as Craig has mentioned, things are looking healthy, which is a good sign overall.
