My Sky+ box has just started make a noise


Novice Member
Even when in standby it makes a noise, it does sound like the HDD, but why would this be spinning if the box is in standby? (And not recording)

I really hope it lasts until Sky HD, can anyone help as i have to turn the tv up louder now to drown it out.

Plenty of threads here and elsewhere on similar topics....SKy+ boxes(esp the 160s) seem to have a fair bit of HDD noise anyway,and the fan speeds were turned up(or permanently on)by software upgrades,but at least the problem with SkyMovies 1,2&3 and sound breakup appears now to have been sorted!
