All of Virgins boxes have update routines running as part of the normal firmware. So the box will contact a server once an hour, & more times overnight. Turning off the box completely will cause more problems than is solves, as the EPG takes ages to repopulate, & you could get to a situation of having no EPG data at all.
Have you got the TiVO sitting directly on a hard surface?
I have seen several posts from people where the TiVO is causing vibration. If you can try putting some insulation under the feet & see whether this solves the issue.

I've got in sat 5mm off the wood on plastic arms of a Griffin Elevator laptop stand, and then in the four points where it touches, its sat on laminated floor leg protectors (think they are cork) to try and dampen the vibration
a bit Heath Robinson but the vibration has driven me made from the getgo....
the disk chatter is really getting under my skin,
the fact the top of the TiVo isnt flat means I couldn't sit my blu-ray player on it so I used a Griffin Elevator to 'hover' the blu-ray over the TiVo
what does anyone recommend for the four corners to give it bounce?
