Tivo Box Spins Up A lot

Hello all,

This issue I am experiencing is with the older Tivo not V6 box.

We have this older box in our bedroom and I am noticing over that last few weeks in the middle of this night a noise like the hard drive spinning up or the box running with a humming noise and running for a long time, goes off for a few mins then starts up again.  The HD is not making clunking sounds and the Tivo box is in Standby mode.  We do not record on this box at all really and no one is accessing it remotely as only thre Mrs and I are in the house and not sleeping in seperate bedrooms.....yet 😉

All in all the box works fine except for the random and long running sounds coming from it and in the middle of the night sounds louder or is more noticeable than the day.

Is this normal or do I have bat like hearing?  Any settings I can change?

We cannot locate the box any were else further away from us.

Thanks and cheers

Re: Tivo Box Spins Up A lot

OK cool, thanks for that, but this is very very often and also over long periods of time.  Is that normal?
