TiVo box noise

my TiVo box has started to make a horrible sort of pumping noise. I can only describe it as almost like a heart pumping. I have to turn the tv up to drown it out. Thinking of ringing virgin if you guys have no answers. This has only just started happening.

 

cheers Al

Re: TiVo box noise

Little known fact. The TiVo box is a living breathing creature. With yesterday. Wing Valentine's Day it was sad to not get a Valentine's card so it is showing you that it is there and alive (and ready to receive Valentine's) by letting you listen to its heart.

If you tickle it a bit under the power button you may hear it purr sometimes.

Re: TiVo box noise

Hi mrbotswana,

 

A warm welcome to the community Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry to hear your box is running a bit noisily.  Have you tried placing little foam cushions under the feet of the box?  This may help reduce the volume of any possible vibration sounds on the TV unit.

 

Let me know how you get on, I'm here to help.
