I had MySky installed recently and the first thing I noticed was a rather loud continuous whirring noise coming from the unit. Sounds like it could be the hard drive or a fan. It continues even when the unit is turned off via the on/off button. It is loud enough to be annoying when watching programmes at low volume. Just want to know if this is normal ie does anyone else have this sound from their unit?. I'd ask Sky but would rather hear from users. Thanks.

I can hear our MySky unit if I put my ear right up next to it.  But if I move a couple of metres away, and close the glass cabinet doors, then I can't hear it even if the room is otherwise completely silent.

Sounds (pun intended) like you've got a dodgy unit.

Can't hear our mysky either. Can only hear it if I put my head in the TV cabinet. However, it is hard to see the TV from there Laughing Sounds like a dodgy unit. Bummer! Frown

Try not to record too much as when they replace it you will end up with a blank one. The great thing is that they are owned by sky!

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Mine is quieter than the US Military storeroom for evidence of Iraqi WMDs.
