I have Telus internet, Optik TV and home phone.
When I am watching TV, there is an intermittent strange sound occurring among the boxes. It seems to occur when the PVR is recording, and sounds like a system reset accompanied by a high pitched squeak. This is really annoying.
Please can anyone tell me what this is and how to fix it.
This has been going on for a few years now, and I finally decided to do something about it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
That's not a router, that's your PVR. It has a hard drive to save your recordings which is likely what's making ht noise since that's the only moving part in the box.
The regular occurance at 5:00 PM is rather puzzling. Do you have any series recoding scheduled on the PVR? Perhaps it correlates to when it need to record a show. I believe the hard drive may go to sleep to save energy when you are not watching or recording.
