I received my 2 remote controls in a box and had a quick look at them & I was immediately a bit dubious about the upgrade. Either the remotes had been bashing into each other during transport or they were second hand as there were scratches all over them.
I ended up going ahead anyway and the moment I upgraded to 360... I regretted it!
Immediately after the reboot, there was a whining noise coming from the box in the lounge. It did eventually calm down later, but I watched a movie (With loud surround sound) and I could hear it come back in the background!
The same thing is occurring with the V6 box in the bedroom, although not quite as bad.
It seems to me that the fans are set to run at a higher speed... one that makes a noise when the temperature rises even a little bit (They're still not hot to the touch). This was never a problem before & ventilation is fine.
Is this something that can be configured remotely, or will I need to request some newer boxes (Mine must be at least 5 years old).
Is there any way to turn the box off faster in the bedroom too, the old version used to stop the hard drive after a couple of minutes of going into standby, but the 360 continued on for longer.
As a side note... the requesting of a pin before the watershed is a very annoying "feature", especially considering that there are no kids in my house! I realise that this is not VM's fault (I will write to Ofgem!), but anyone else considering this upgrade should note that they will constantly be putting their pin in.
