Noisy V6 box

Does anyone else have a noisy V6 box, my old TIVO was silent but this one you can here when you come into the room.

Has anyone had theirs replaced and was it easy.

Re: Noisy V6 box

Mines dead silent.

Sounds like a faulty HD, I would get it swapped out sooner rather than later as you'll lose your recordings when you do.

Re: Noisy V6 box

I've noticed the V6 boxes are louder than their predecessors - I think it's the hard drive whirring when the boxes come out of sleep? I can only hear it when it's very quiet though. It's difficult to describe online obviously, but how "loud" is "loud"? Smiley Tongue

Re: Noisy V6 box

LOL seems to be a range then...

I dont hear mine at all- and I can hear my computers HD spinning from across the room so was pretty surprised NOT to hear anything off V6

In fairness its in a VERY sturdy (solid oak) AV unit, so maybe thats damping it. Never heard me vanilla TiVo either in the same unit but can hear the other one  on a metal/glass unit I have in another room.

Re: Noisy V6 box

I contacted Virgin and they have booked me in for a replacement on Tuesday.

The man I talked to said they should not make any noise and that he had to get one changed last week as that was also noisy which was unusual.

Re: Noisy V6 box

Other way round for me. TiVo had to be stood on foam pads to reduce the noise, V6 absolutely silent.

Re: Noisy V6 box

Same here. I was at the point I was either going to get a V6 box, or chuck the noisy Tivo out the window.
