    Default Tata Sky HD + Noise Problem

    I have a Tata Sky + HD box, and for the past few days when I switch the box on it makes a weird noise. I think it may be something to do with the hard drive as the noise is most probably coming from there. I don't know whether this noise was there before or not because I didn't pay much attention previously, and it has just come into my notice now.

    Can any other Tata Sky HD + user let me know whether this noise form the box is normal or not?

    Listen closely to your computer starting up. When the hard drive starts, it makes a similar sound. Is this the weird sound you are speaking of? like trrrrrrrrrrr-tk-tk-tk-tk?

    Its normal, since the plus HD box has a 500 gb hdd, and this is what makes that noise. In case there is a lot of heat or dust or both in ur location, the fan may also cause some noise.

    I also have the hd+ recorder and it does make a lot of noise. It did not initially but in the last six months the noise has increased. May be the hard drive is about to fail?

    You should call Tata Sky customer care and have them check the problem, before the STB crashes!

    I dont think the boxes are under warranty any more but I think the hard drive inside may be under warranty as most of them come with a long warranty. I dont know if they would entertain if it were to fail.

    If you have a lot programs recorded and your hard drive is about 90% full then you should remove some programs.
