High Pitch noise driving me crazy!

I see that I am not the only one who suffers from hearing a constant high-pitch noise coming from the U-verse box or gateway. The noise is constant when the box is on or off. I have reset the box several times but still have the noise. Any ideas for fixing it?

Re: High Pitch Noise so what is the answer

Get better ventilation and it will stop, it's caused by too much heat. :smileywink:

Re: High Pitch noise driving me crazy!

I am glad to see I am not the only one having this problem, When I call they tell me everything is working properly. I just replaced my third DVR and it is doing the same thing. I am so fustrated. Why can't they fix the problem if so many people are complaining about it. Very disappointed with them at this point.

Make sure your DVR is in an area with good ventilation.  It could be that it is over heating and the high pitched whine you are hearing is the cooling fan.

most likely it the fans running to cool off components because the small cameras and microphones installed inside all dvr boxes. it was on cnn and cbs, title; big brother is watching you. google it or yourube it.
