X1G4 loud fan/noise even in power saving mode.

X1G4 cable box has a loud fan/noise that never stops even  in power saving mode.

Same here. Already one trip to the comcast store to get a new one and the second box is even noisier. Planning on going back again this weekend for a third try but will plug in at the store before I take it home. We upgraded our internet to gigabit and Comcast made us swap our standard, silent cable box with a larger, uglier DVR box (a feature we will never use) that now emits a constant humming sound which fills our living room. Beware the unwanted upgrade!
