some brands are noiser than others as the gubbins inside are different

I have that one and it sometimes makes a buzzing noise, I just lift it up at one corner buy 1 cm and let it drop down. Not very technical but it gets rid of the noise.

My sky + HD box is really noisy and the light on the front rotates constantly like its playing when its not. Its quite new as well, still works though so never done anything about it

If your light is spinning all the time have you made sure its not in demo mode? Demo mode makes the light spin around all the time!

Press SERVICES and select SKY+ SET UP from the menu
Highlight FRONT PANEL INDICATOR and use the left/right arrow to change the setting
You probably have it set at DEMO - change it to STANDARD
Select SAVE NEW SETTINGS when you're done

Mine always does too, the changing to standard instead of demo fixed the lights but the noise is still bad as ever
