    Is anyone elses sky+ boxes sound like there is a washing machine inside of it.

    There's a constant noise:confused: :confused:

    It's brand new from yesterday when it was all installed.

    And by the way it is a Thomson sky+ box.

    Sorry if this has been posted before.

    Thanks people:thumbsup:

    I had an Amstrad box fitted yesterday and you can also here the fan going but it is not unbearable.
    Have seen on other threads that if you turn off instant rewind it helps.
    I should imagine that you will get some noise but it should not be overpowering. If it is that bad perhaps you need to give Sky a ring, there may be a software update that might help.

    Got a Thomson box last week. I can hear a slight noise from the fan but it's quieter than my DVD recorder.

    I have a Thomson box and the noise is also unbearable, on looking at posts on digital spy, it seems that the current batch of Thomson boxes are crap.

    I already had a sky engineer out and all they did was a software update, but I can't put up with the noise any longer, so I will be calling them today and asking for a replacement box.

    I'll keep you posted on how I get on.
