  1. TiVo Edge
    What should I expect noise-wise for an Edge? Is your unit more or less silent? I hear quite of bit of whir even when the unit is in standby, so I don't think it is the spinning disk. Is it the CPU fan? What other moving parts are in this thing? I don't see much of a vent or anything. What...
  2. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    I've got a Roamio (846-0001-xxxx-xxxx) that's stuck in a boot loop and the fan is running quite loudly. I'm guessing it's both a drive and fan failure. It shows the startup logo for a bit and then reboots. The unit has lifetime. It'll be annoying to lose the season passes and programs on it...
  3. TiVo Premiere DVRs
    The fan in my Premiere has been loud upon startup since I got it used a number of years ago. I upgraded to a Bolt a year ago and stopped using the Premiere. I need to start using the Premiere again, and wanted to know if the fan is only loud upon startup, should I be concerned about replacing...
  4. TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion
    Tried out a Tivo Bolt today. I compared it to a Tivo HD with respect to noise level. Tivo Bolt is definitely a lot louder. The best description I can think of is a hair dryer. I made some recordings of it versus a series3 HD. I think Bolt's design is faulty because I can definitely see the...
  5. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    There are two things I like about the Mini that the Bolt doesn't offer: 1) the Mini makes zero noise (the Bolt's harddrive can make noise). 2) the Mini has a screen saver instead of reverting to Live TV like the Bolt does. I like being able to go to Tivo Central and have a screen saver activate...
  6. TiVo Help Center
    Recently, video coming through my Tivo Series 2 (live or pre-recorded) has quite a bit of distortion. Sort of a "tearing" which actively moves around (sort of like when you had a dirty playhead on an old VCR). If I pause what I'm watching, the interference does NOT freeze, but continues to move...
  7. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Hi everyone, I recently upgraded my TiVo Premiere XL4 to the TiVo Bolt. I enjoy everything about the a bolt except the loud noise coming from the fan. I can be all the way across the living room and still hear the fan going. I must say it is one of the loudest piece of equipment I've ever had...
  8. TiVo Home Media Features & TiVoToGo
    Downloaded a few shows from the Bolt to the Mac. All showed up very quickly. But when I play them on the Mac (via VLC Player) or on my Android phone (via Emit app) some have intermittent periods of green noise all over the screen. Several seconds of clean video, then spurts of...
