Why is it I can hear my (king vq4550) dish move when receiver/tv are turned off?? Is this normal?

TIA!

Certain housekeeping functions happen in the background, even when the receiver is in standby. Downloading the 9-day guide comes to mind.

Hey there, SPower. What comes to mind, if it's not the guide updating, is that it's checking your software to make sure it's up-to-date. While the nightly update does this as well, our receivers are programmed to check the software when in standby too. Are you noticing this happening several times a day? Do you know if the Wally is plugged into a power saver surge protector? - Caleb S
