I just got a new box (Amstrad I think), and it sounds like an out of control grandfather clock!!

tick, tick, whirr........it's really annoying.

I know the hard drive is going to make some noise, but can anyone tell me if its meant to be this loud?

Cheers.

The edge.
sounds like a faulty hard drive m8. they click when first powered up then the noise should be tiny, get onto sky if still under warranty, otherwise it an expensive receiver replacement, or replace the harddrive yourself ;)

It's just a brand new box, only got fitted on Saturday, so I'll be right on the phone to them.

Cheers Guys.

Just called them, and they say it's a software problem with my type of box, and if it doesn't affect the viewing etc, they won't replace it......................we'll see!
