Anyone experience an issue with their DVR where it is making a loud noise.  Reminds me of the noise a PC makes when the power supply is ready to go...thoughts?

Thoughts?  It obviously has to be replaced.  You haven't stated the model number, but if you search these pages you will find many posts with the exact same problem you have described (for a given model DVR).  It's either the fan (in some models) or the hard drive, because there are no other moving parts.

 

These devices cannot be repaired in any reasonable way in your home, and the only solution is replacement.  Either contact Verizon, or use one of the FiOS stores for a replacement unit.
