    Help please i have a Sky + just recently i have been hearing a loud hum like transformer hum i went over to the Sky box to investgate i put my hand on the box and i felt vibration from the box going though fingers if i move the box just a fraction the hum goes away for a hour or two but then comes back again sometimes it gets quite loud that i can hear it where i am siting 16ft away could it be the internal fan that keeps it cool or something else. :( :lease:

    There are noisy fan issues with + since a software upgrade. I'd assume thats what this is. If it's a 'recent' thing then it's probably the 'enhanced software' giving increased cooling (fan on more often - maybe all the time) People have talked of resolving this with Fanmate a fan speed controller. If it's particularly noisy, it may be faulty.
