Noisey Sky+ box worries?

In the last few weeks my sky+ box has gone from whisper quiet to very noticable with it whiring away in the back ground, even the misses has commented on it, so I know its not just me! Should I be worried its just about to pack up? Can they just run noisey? Should I be looking for a replacement? If so, whats the best cheapest way to get the new 1tb box without taking out skys hd subscription? I know most want hd from the box, but my tv does a good job with standard def, I cant warrent the extra £10.25 per month at the moment. I just want the 1tb box for cosmetics and extra hdd space. Any comments welcome!:lease:

Clearly it's long past the time when you should have had a replacement!
The first thing to do is ask Sky what, if anything, they'll charge you for the 1.5TB or 500gB PVRs.
They're the only machines that are current now.
You'll be wanting a HD TV sooner or later, and the free HD channels are worth having then.

Thanks for the advice, think I will get on to sky soon and politely ask for an upgrade replacement box. Its an Amstrad sky+ box, not sure on the model number as I would have to dismantle bits to get to the back of it. Its about 4 and a half years old, but was a manufacturers refurb when we got it (from sky when we first took out the subscription). If im going to get a new box, I might aswell get the most upto date one, so the 1.5tb it is.

Yes, you could have had that replacement long ago.
Read up the thread on the subject to see the best way of going about asking for it.
