View Full Version : 630 pvr noisy when off

10-22-2011, 06:19 PM
When I power off my 630 pvr the green lite goes off and it seems to be off. However, there's still either a hdd or a fan noise clearly audible. The unit stays quite warm too. Is this normal?

since the 630 is a PVR I assume the hard drive is still running

how warm are we talking? Is it ventilated enough?

even though the green light is off, the pvr is in stand-by mode. that way it can still record, receive guide updates, etc

Thanks for the speedy replies. I now understand it's normal to have the hdd spinning and the pvr warm even when it's in "standby" mode. I guess I just have a noisy hdd:( Or, perhaps it's a fan, if there is one in this pvr.

There is a fan, and that is probably the noise you are hearing.

I've been also having some other "hangs" type problems that require unplugging to recover from. During the power on sequence I see, at one point, in the display a code "Hdn1." Does anyone know if this is normal?
