V+hd box noisy

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?

Re: V+hd box noisy

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.
