Hi nostromo

That does not sound right, I have had about 5 Tivo boxes and none make that much noise. I would call Tivo support save the harddrive going bang!

Do let us know how you get on.

Re: noise from new tivo box is driving me mad

They're noisy, you have to learn to live with it I'm afraid. At night when everything is quiet it sounds like rain dripping onto a box. You can put the box on  something that will dampen the noise like some foam but bear in mind the box gets hot and you don't want to be covering any air vents.

Hi nostromo,

 

Welcome to the Community!

Sorry to hear you're having TiVo® trouble. The TiVo® hard drive should not be audible enough to impact your viewing experience!

I'd like to get a technician to sort this out for you. I've sent you and private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can get this arranged with you.

Look forward to hearing from you!  Smiley Very Happy

Hi memememe,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

In the end we had to book nostromo a technician to get it sorted out.

 

Are you getting the same issue? What surface is the TiVo® set on?

 

Look forward to hearing from you!  Smiley Very Happy
