Hello, I've read many posts about this but no definite answer.
I upgraded to a V6 yesterday a d am disappointed by the noise coming from it.
It's either a fan or hard drive.. Or both.
At night, I'll have the tv set at volume number 4, perfectly acceptable for me to hear without disturbing anyone. But with this new box, I have to crank up the volume to drown out the annoying whirring.
Similarly, this morning, the normal silent living room has a the whirring noise. It's kind of like a VHS player playing a tape.
I'm not sticking my head next to it. I'm a good 3 metres away.
Is it faulty?
Please don't insult me by saying it's got a hard drive and a fan. My old TiVo had a hard drive and fan, and was pretty much silent.
All I get from both my boxes is a low hiss, so the box may be faulty. I hope it is as you cannot just "plug in" the old box, which will now be wiped off VM's systems & not useable. This is a precaution to prevent boxes being used fraudulently.
