New TiVo box making a clicking noise

Hi there,

We have just had our new TiVo box installed today having replaced Sky.

Since being fitted there is a very audible and annoying clicking coming from the box which sounds like an old hard drive being written to.

Do the TiVo boxes have HDDs in them or SSDs?

If HDDs this would explain the noise, but it is constant and is one of those things that once you hear it; it is all you can hear..... driving me mad now Smiley Mad

Has anyone else had similar issues and managed to resolve?

Re: New TiVo box making a clicking noise

Hmmmm...... the noise of the HDD is to the point of being unbearable, the box has just started being really laggy now too and the interface is nowhere near as slick or user friendly as Sky.

FAO and mods or the VM team; what are my options with cancellation of my TV package?

We had TV and Broadband installed on Friday; broadband is ace (really ace in fact) but really not happy with the TV.

Welcome to the Community and really sorry for the issue experienced with your TiVo®.

 

I can see that you've spoken with the team since posting and agreed to monitor performance.

 

Is this still giving you some trouble?
