    After restarting my Tivo from the menu, a loud noise started coming from my Tivo. It sounds like a fan with bad bearings :(

    I hope they didn't cheap out with the fans on these boxes.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    If it's the fan going bad, it's easily replaced. You could try using some compressed air to blow out the fan and see if that helps. Do you feel any air moving?

    I had that and it was only on a reboot as the fan goes into high speed. After a few minutes, when the boot was complete, it was quiet again. I did not want to wait for it to fail so I replaced it.
