    Had SKY + installed. 2 days later a clear whining noise was comming from the Box (armstrad). Engineer came and replaced the box with a Pace box - said it was better than Armstrad. There was no fan noise heard from the Armstrad box but from the Pace box you can clearly hear the fan when it comes on - it is not constant but annoying - same as computer fans.

    Is it me or do others also have the same problem. Can you hear the fan running in your Pace box.

    The fan in my v2 Pace box is on all the time even though it's in a well ventilated cabinet - I think it's something to do with the last software update.

    It's only audible is everything else is switched off and there is no other source of noise in the room.

    Yeah i had my Amstrad swapped to a Pace last night cos of dreadful picture quality. The Amstrad had a high pitched whirring sound which the pace doesn't but the Pace fan is slighly louder. I can cope wit ha fan noise compared to a high pitched noise though.
