Sky+ 160 6am Switch On



Just got a Sky+ 160 box a couple of days ago and I'm experiencing an odd "feature". Every day the box seems to switch itself out of standby for a few seconds at 6am, spinning up the hard drive. I live in a studio flat, and the hard drive (or maybe fan) on these things is pretty loud so it wakes me up, which is not so much of a problem on weekdays, but is going to be a real pain in the neck at weekends.

I had a trawl around the net, but the only thing I can see even close to this is that Sky often downloads software updates at around 6am.

So, are these switch-on's experienced by everyone, and no one has mentioned it? Or are they software updates, and I'm just unlucky enough to have them the first two days after I get the box? Or is this a problem?

Thanks in advance for the help!
