I've had my Sky HD box for about 6 months now, but ever since it was delivered and installed I've been unhappy with the noise the box makes in comparison with my old standard Sky box.
I called Sky to ask if the noise was normal and I was told that it is because the box is contunually updating it's data and if it gets hot the fan kicks in to keep the box cool. I was even advised to turn off Sky Anytime which apparently is constantly updating.
The box is well ventilated on a proper AV stand and even with the Sky Anytime function disabled, my Sky HD box is noisey and can be heard over tv dialogue if it is a quiet scene or the volume is simply turned down low. Furthermore, I don't see why I should pay for an HD service and have to forego some of its functionality (i.e. Sky Anytime) to keep the noise down!
Has anyone had a similar problem? If so, how did you resolve it?
Any suggestions/advice welcome.
