Well, this is because of some applications accessing data, like syslog and mysql do, and the kernel flushing the disk caches.
You can configure the behaviour of the disk caches somewhere, or kill the bdflush deamon at all to stop flushing when not necessary.

I was thinking about doing that but I've not got round to it yet. 
However, I'm not hopeful that it will work.  My frontend runs on the
backend box and whenever the frontend is running I see a regular blip of
the HD light - around 2 a second - even when not recording or viewing
TV, it's totally idle. 

Anyone know why is it doing this?
