Tivo suddenly loud hard drive and buffering HD OD

Hello,

 

I've had my tivo for a while now with no real issues. I know the box needs to constantly use the disk but in the last couple of weeks it is driving me mad. Like now, it is chug chug chug then quiet for a few minutes, then chug chug for 10 mins or more.

 

It was never like this and had gotten much worse for the noise levels. Any thing I can do to stop this or get a replacement please?

 

Also, I have never been able to watch OD HD due to buffering, can this also be checked?

 

Cheers

Mark

Hello,

 

unfortunately not. If we are not watching the tv and in the living room (which is a lot) I put the tivo box into standby mode now to stop it.

 

Cheers
