Just got a Virgin plus box, noticed it has a bit of a noisy hum all the time, anyone else noticed this on theirs?

Havn't got one but proberbly cooling fan, daughters dvd recorder with HDD does it but not all of the time.

Thanks strawballs, have got a dvd with hardrive too but it is much quieter and fan only comes on intermittently

It could depend on where your Virgin Plus box is situated - if it is in a warm area or doesn't get enough cool air this might be the cause.

People who place computer system cases on the floor near a wall or under a desk sometimes suffer in the same way.

no stuartli, box is off floor and well ventilated, just seems to have a persistant hum even when on standy

sorry standby

Could be worth asking for a replacement as it must be distracting.
