I have had a new V6 box installed and have set it into Eco mode. When I "send it to sleep/standby" something is starting up and making a whirring noise. It could be a fan or hard drive noise? This eventually stops but after a while it starts up again. I have left the the box in standby now for a couple of days and this start/stop of whatever is causing the whirring continues in what appears to be a random fashion. Has anyone any ideas
In my experience the fan is always running but it is very quiet. I have to put my ear very close to hear it. Someone with a condition such as hyperacusis could still find they hear this low noise and find it aggravating.
I think it is more likely that the disk is spinning up to download EPG updates. In my experience, this is currently happening four times a day so could happen twice during someone's nightly sleep.
