I have a vip722dvr and there is always a sound coming out of it like a fan running. Is it a fan and why is it always on, even when the unit is turned off?

DVRs like the ViP722 run 24/7. The power button only turns off the video output and the lights on the front of the unit. The rest of the box continues running so it can buffer live television and record your programs.


You could be hearing the fan or the hard drive.

My 722 is pretty quiet. All I can hear is the faint whisper of the fan. Mine is not in a cabinet. It is on an open shelf. My SA8300HD was much louder, with a whiny hard drive.
