    Unless it was the cooling fan underneath, my Bolt played a little song today - no idea why. Has anyone heard this - and what does it mean???

    Maybe it was laughter.

    No, it did not sound like laughter, but a song made of beeps. It was pretty funny, though.

    If it sounded like the old TiVo boot song, I'd say it was the remote finder.

    Except then the sound would probably be coming from the remote.

    Yeah if you touch the little remote icon on the front it make the remote sing a little song so that you can find it. (kind of like paging a cordless phone)

    Maybe the Bolt was tuned to a news channel. A lot of funny stuff there. I still think it was laughing. :D

    'Remote Finder' was my thinking, too.

    The Remote Finder button on a BOLT is supposedly a small button on the back panel, unlike on the Roamio Plus & Pro.

    YES! I must have accidentally pressed it while trying to put in an attenuator (getting pixelization on a few channels). The remote was sitting right next to it.

    Weird song - sort of like a children’s song from a horror movie. Thanks for clearing this up - had me totally befuddled! :)

    Yeah I forgot it was a physical button on the Bolt. I wa thinking of the Romio Pro where it's just a little icon on the front that's touch sensative. (the maid always sets it off when she's dusting. Turns on the Xbox too which has similar touch sensative button)
