    Default Noisey Xbox

    After living with my xbox for about 4 months I'm really starting to notice the PC like noise it gives out. The background hum is especially noticable if you try to watch a DVD.

    Has anybody tried replacing the Xbox fan(s) to reduce the noise or do you think this should be possible?

    Thanks.........Paul.

    I got a box from the local Tesco, lined the inside with sound proofing sponge from a Music shop and plonked the xbox in there. Totally silent now. The only nag is when my mates always ask me why I have a box of apples under the TV.

    Default Harddisk spinning when playing movies

    Couldn't we patch the xbox so that the hard disk gets turned off, when playing DVDs?
