More Information about this problem

TiVo changed fan suppliers during production of these units. That tells us that TiVo found some fans to be problematic. We've found the same. Unfortunately, the fans in these units fail way too soon, and are not the easiest to replace. But the risk is, a loud fan will fail sooner due to the excess friction, and then you could really hurt your hardware. And you'll need to swap the fan then anyway, so just swap it before it fails.
