TV box makes loud whirring noise in standby

I now have to unplug my TV box when I'm not watching TV as it makes a really loud annoying whirring noise when it's on standby mode. Is this normal or is there something wrong with it? The old Virgin box never did this; it drives me crazy if I'm reading & just want some quiet!

NB: I clicked V6 above but actually I don't know what kind of box it is - it was installed last year or maybe the year before.

To identify the box"

Sound like the classic noise any hard drive makes when its got problems, call it in as a fault before it gives up the ghost

Call it in and see if you can get a replacement
