    My DirectTivo is noisy, I believe it is the HD spinning. I can hear it over 10 feet away.

    Is there any way to quiet it down?

    TIA

    They do make some noise. Is yours in the open or in a cabinet? Also go to the system information page and page down and see what the temp is, if it is over 50 deg c then the internal fan will be on high. The TiVo is ALWAYS recording, even in the standby mode. I have 3 of them in my HT cabinet, but it has a glass front so I dont hear it or I have gotten used to it.

    I have a SA Tivo that is also in a closed cabinet, so I do not hear it.
    That said, here is where you need to go for all things Tivo:
