      Constant buzzing/hardrive operation on refurb Sky+ box

      Had my old Amstrad box replaced a couple of days ago with a refurbed Thomson box. Just been tidying up the wires and have just started noticing a constant buzzing noise from the box and a sound which I can only describe as a read/write noise which happens every 5 or 6 seconds which I assume is the hard-drive. Is this normal? I have a Pace box upstairs and thats practically silent

      If it was a couple of days ago, it could be anytime loading up.
