    Just activated a replacement R16. Is it common for these receivers to emit a high-pitched whine? Or is that just during start up?

    It's VERY aggravating.

    Could be a bad fan bearing, HDD bearing, or bad power supply.

    It's NOT a common occurence. I would call DirecTV and request a different unit.
