Tivo Clicking Sound

Had my Tivo quite a few weeks now and it's been totally silent, but the last few days it's started to make a clicking/tapping sound all i can describe it as it like water dripping onto a conservatory roof when it's just starting to rain....Driving me nuts!

Re: Tivo Clicking Sound

My TiVo occasionally makes a clicking noise too, it sounds like the noise a hard drives make when they are about to fail.  It did it on the day it was installed, which was around 7 weeks ago, and a few times shortly after that, but it seems to have done it a fair few times over the past few days.  Do I have a dodgy drive?

Re: Tivo Clicking Sound

derky,

I have checked your TiVo STb from here and hard disc status is giving no errors. Unless you start receiving errors then I cannot see any reason why you the drive is dodgy. I would suggest monitoring for now.

Cheers

Could be defragmenting itself, I heard it while turning my ps3 on when I was really close to it,

Re: Tivo Clicking Sound

MIne makes a very loud ticking all the time, although it does go silent for a minute now and then

Re: Tivo Clicking Sound

Hi Bravo210,

Due to technical issues I'm unable to check the status of the Tivo just now.

Please monitor for 24 hrs and then post back if the drive continues to make the noise.

Thanks

Re: Tivo Clicking Sound

Mines been making a ticking noise, but found putting foam pads under the feet seems to have stopped the noise.
It may still be making the noise, but I'm wondering if the TV stand was amplifiying the sound.

Re: Tivo Clicking Sound

So, should the Tivo be totaaly silent, or should it make this constant ticking noise ?
