This would be my guess as well.  It sounds like the LED HDD light is putting
out light waves somewhere in the IR spectrum.  I have something similar
happen to my MCEUSB receiver.  When it's dark in the room, and the LCD TV
first turns on, or shows a black screen, the light on the MCEUSB goes
crazy.  I've just learned to live with it, as I don't intend on putting
black tape over my TV.  :-)
