TiVo box noise getting louder.

Hi, new to this forum but had Virgin for a few years. Over the last weeks the box has been slow, keeps locking and needs rebooting every few days. It is also getting louder, chugging noise!

I have phoned tec services who keep saying their test are running OK, even monitoring it from their end for 48 hours. If didn't crash over those days, Sod's law! Any ideas?

Re: TiVo box noise getting louder.

If it's getting louder it could be a dying HDD.

Which model do you have? Cisco/Samsung 1TB/500GB?

Thanks for your reply. The box is a Cisco 1TB and must be at least 4 years old.

Re: TiVo box noise getting louder.

Any other issues with the box (pixellated/jumpy recordings for example)?

If you're not sure about it give them a ring and they can prod the box remotely.
