Tivo Box powers up itself

Hi, My Tivo box randomly powers on during the night, this is annoying as it is in the bedroom and the noise from the fan wakes me up. Is this a known issue or a probelm with my box?

Hi it's quite normal as virgin update services in the early hours when there are less viewers using the systems, however the fan shouldn't be that noisy if the box is properly ventilated.Regards Micky

No fan if it's an original TiVo - you might be hearing hard disk vibration. If this is the case, a spongy thing under each corner might provide a bit of isolation from whatever the TiVo is sitting on.

If it's a V6 then it may well be a fan, wouldn't have a clue if there's a fan in there or not (though, looking at the box - it certainly looks big enough to house one).
