Is it normal for the main dvr set-top boxes to make periodic whirring (like a hatd drive) noise when not on and not recording? This noise makes me kind of paranoid. OK,not really but I do womder if this moise is normal. Thanks.
Make sure it has good ventilation under it, when they get hot they do tend to make more noise at times. Mine I have raised up 1" to avoid this.
I've had everything off in the living room trying to take a nap and could hear the DVR hard drive spooling up before starting to record something, downloading a Guide update and for other OK things.
Please NO SD stretch-o-vision or 480 SD HD Channels

Yes, it is normal (in a quiet room) to hear the DVR hard drive spin up, run for 30 seconds or so, and then spin back down when the DVR is in standby mode. Our DVR is in the bedroom and it does this throughout the night.
