TiVo excessive noise during night

Hello

I have a TiVo box in my bedroom and for the past week my TiVo box keeps starting up around 3am make a loading sound for about 5 seconds then stop but constantly does this on loop for well over 30 mins (or until I eventually fall back to sleep).

I know it usually comes on in the night which I presume is for updates, but this is excessive and driving me insane as it's quite loud and keeps waking me up!!

Anybody know why or if I disconnect it each night, would this be a problem when I come to use the TiVo box the next day? I need sleep 😫

Many Thanks

Re: TiVo excessive noise during night

Another report that sounds remarkably similar to

http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-Media-TiVo-service/TiVo-Keeps-Spinning-Up-Down/m-p/323225...

Do you have any idea when this behaviour may have started? Is it a Cisco or a Samsung box?

Re: TiVo excessive noise during night

I wonder if that's why I've started waking up around 3am every morning for the last few weeks. I've put the box on top of a folder towel, which helps a lot with the noise, but it's still pretty noisy when things are quiet at night...
