Re: TIVO BOX

How long have you had the box? Has the noise just started? Only reason I ask, is because the TiVo boxes are far from silent but I wouldn't say a scratching noise is normal.

Probably is a faulty hard drive but I need the above clarifying before I can advise further.

Re: TIVO BOX

Thanks for your post av-

The noise sounds like the hard drive is askew. 

I think we've had this box about 5 years, and its used every day

Sometimes a knocking sound - sometimes nothing

Re: TIVO BOX

No problem. Almost certainly a failed hard drive.

Call up and ask them to run their tests. They may be able to see an issue from their end. If not, insist an engineer comes out or they post you a new one anyway as it's making a loud noise that wasn't present when you first got it.

Keep us posted.
