Whenever I have finished running Media Centre to watch TV my hard drive continues to grind away and is pretty loud and annoying. This is on a Windows 7-64, with 4GB of RAM with plenty of free hard disk space, so it can't be running out of memory or hard disk space. The TV decoder is a Hauppauge WinTV HVR 900-H. I appreciate that it records the program being watched to hard drive cache but surely it should stop the grinding after Media Centre is closed?
It doesn't do the grinding thing prior to running Media Centre and it only stops the grinding after a reboot. It's quite annoying because it's pretty loud - any ideas please?
