    Hey, I recently replaced the HD in my 4 year old Roamio. I installed the WD30EFRXSP which was recommended online. Did the fan last year, replacement from weaknees. New drive runs great does everything but there is a low level hum that is always there. I understand that tivo never turns off. Is there a Solid State Drive option?
    Thanks

    SSD's, as with all solid state memory, are prone to degradation from frequent overwrite cycles so are not recommended for AV recording.

    The hard drive must run all the time if you want TiVo to be able to record shows. I find much of the hum is caused by the surface the TiVo sits on. Bits of sponge rubber (like foam carpet backing) under the feet may help.
