      Sky+ Opening

      hi my sky+ is buzzing really really loud, as a temporary fix i have a xbox stood on top as this stops the noise.

      i was wondering is there any online tutorials on how to open the sky+ box to solve to humming i am sure its the fan.

      i would ring sky but i don't want a refurbished box as i have paid for a new one!

      also is there any reason on why the movie channels are very quiet, and i need to turn the tv right up to hear it properly?
      thanks
      si

      Re: Sky+ Opening

      If the weight of the x-box is stopping the 'buzzing' it sounds like the fan maybe loose. Try opening the Sky+ box and check all the screws/connections are ok. ( cheaper than buying a fan that may not be needed and finding out it's a loose screw!)

      What make of Sky+ box is it? If it's a Thomson here's a link to a site with posts about excessive noise Satellite - - Thomson: PVR3 - Digital Spy We have a PVR3 and so far it's been the 'donkeys hangy downy bits'

      The movie channels that have lower sound, apparantly Sky know about it and supposedly a firmware update is going to sort it. If and when that is going to happen i`ve no idea. From looking at the posts in the forum it seems not everyone suffers from this effect though?
