Ticking noise on TiVo box

My TiVo box is making a ticking noise similar to maybe an old DVD player or Xbox game skipping. Only had it installed on Thursday 30th June so not sure what's happening as wouldn't expect problems so soon.

Re: Ticking noise on TiVo box

Hi Krw96,

 

Thank you for writing into the Community, i would like to welcome you in Smiley Happy

 

TiVo is great and we'd want the very best of services for you. The box does have moving parts inside such as a hard drive but to reduce the sounds it emits you can try a few things:-

 

  • Keeping it supported on rubber or foam feet,
  • Keeping it out in the open, away from closed areas such as TV cupboards.

Also just to add, can you tell me if this noise is reduced if the TiVo is picked up?

 

Keep in touch.

 

Ben

Hi

Thanks for the advice. We out it on a rubber mat and the noise is significantly reduced.

The noise is reduced when picked up.

Thanks
