What do you mean by noise ? I get it making pretty low whirring noises which the old unit didn't do. When I told the Humax person who sent me the new unit my issue was worse he seemed uninterested. I will never buy Humax again.
I dont mean the hard drive spinning which I can hear up close but its quiet enough. I wouldnt even mind a small fan even though this unit doesnt have one.
Its the annoying rasping or chuntering of the hard drive head as it moves across the disc and back. Ive never heard anything so annoying in a pvr and its also frustrating me that I see other people have reported the same noise problem in reviews...however others say its quiet enough which actually makes me more annoyed.
Whats really upsetting is that very few seem to know what Im referring to. I have never heard a noisier drive clickety clacking away
Its loud and I cant know if I have a louder unit then others. My personal view is that Humax know a bit about this but either face a full recall or they take their chances with getting them back out to the next customer.
I think Im going to pack it up and its going back. They have not suggested any options from Humax customer services other than saying take it back...no guidance no reassurance that the should or shouldnt happen.no guidance about head noise..just a friendly message saying damn all really.
So its going back even if I have to face the awful shop that firstly tried to palm me off with a used unit in a box
