      Constant Clicking on HD box driving me mad !!!

      Can anyone offer some advice please ?

      I have just upgraded from Sky + to SKY HD and the new box is very noisy.

      The constant fan and a worrying clicking coming from the box which i hope is the HDD being accessed....is this normal ? having worked in IT for the last 15 years i can't say i have noticed any PC's HDD making this kind of clicking when data is being accessed on them, except for when they are on the way out.

      I have been told to try turning instant rewind off........can any one point me in the right direction on how i do this please.

      Having looked around on the web it seems that it is hit and miss as to how noisy the HD boxes are.

      Help Please.

      Turn instant rewind off in the menu.
      Have you positioned the Digibox on a resonant shelf or in a cabinet that amplifies the noise?

      I have turned instant rewind off and that seems to have solved the problem.
