Yesterday I had an engineer out to fix my landline and he advised I swap my really old v+ box in the bedroom for a new v+hd box which he did. However I have been awake most of the night due to the sound of a nest of hissing snakes coming from the box continuously unless I unplug it. Please can someone tell me if this is usual, and what I can do to get rid of the noise as I can hear it even when the TV is on?
The cooling fan should not be running all the time, but it is normal for it to start up once an hour for a few minutes. You can turn it off overnight, but beware of leaving it off for too long at a time, as if it misses updates you will be continually phoning customer services to get it updated manually to unlock the viewing card.
