As for noise, I do not hear any noise coming from my X1. Mine is how you described your last DVR; dead silent.
Can anybody else chime in here regarding their X1 and any emitting noise? Mine makes what I would call a functioning noise. What I mean is that it sounds like the X1 is on and operating however it's not a sound in itself. The best I can describe it is like my old PS2 while in use. It is not dead silent. My old HD DVR was. No noise whatsoever. My X1 is not doing the same.
I honestly don't know if this is normal or not. My X1 went black a few nights ago. The time remained (I have the power light off entirely by default) but there was no picture. It was very late and I was finishing a movie before bed so I just got up and unplugged the box entirely from the power outlet. Plugged it back in the next morning and everything was fine.
I have such mixed feelings about the X1. I appreciate the modern UI and HD space. I think the button placement of the remote is terrible (and not being able to simply hold down the volume button is just ridiculous). The Android Xfinity app is incredibly inconsistent with respect to DVRing a program. Sometimes I need to make a note and do it manually on the X1 or use the superior iOS Xfinity app on my iPad Mini.
Anyways, some fellow members weighing in regarding the noise would be appreciated.
