Tivo Box noises

Is it normal for my Tivo box to be so noisy? It churns away constantly as if there are cogs inside. My previous Virgin Media box was completely silent.

Re: Tivo Box noises

Your TiVo has an HDD in it which is continually buffering the channels it's tuned to in order that it can rewind live TV, or record an entire programme from when you turn the TV on (as long as it's started within the past 60 mins).

Was your previous box one of these:

 

 or one of these?

Re: Tivo Box noises

That would be why - the V-HD box has no means to record, therefore no moving parts inside it to make any noise.
