      Sky+

      I've had Sky+ for a week now and it is excellent. I'm very pleased with it.

      I have 1 query though. When my box (Thompson) is in standby it appears that the hard disk is still spinning as I can hear a whirring noise.

      Is this normal? Is there a way of turning the hard disk off until it is needed?

      Thanks

      It is possibly filling the Anytime section up with programs to watch at a later date. You could try turning the Anytime off to see if it solves it for you, if of course you don't use it.

      I've not got Anytime. It says in the instruction manual that I should have it. I can't see it on the menus anywhere though

      I have a Thomson Box and it's noisy. Since getting it we have the volume up at least two bars more than we would need to before we got it. It's just a noisy box I think, seems to stay cool which is the main thing I suppose.

      Anytime on my box is accessed by going to TV Guide and pressing the red button at the first screen.
