I recently moved my HD1000 into a wood, glass-front media cabinet, and not surprisingly (based on other posts) it's getting pretty hot in there. It's funny, I moved everything around (with much effort) because I originally thought it was my DVR cable box that was the main culprit, but the HD1000 is like a griddle. Anyway, I'm exploring cooling options (including the least desirable option, which is sticking the HD1000 on top of the cabinet), and I was wondering whether anyone is using or has considered using one of those laptop cooling pads underneath the Roku? Would it help? Are they loud? Appreciate any thoughts.
I don't know if that would work or not, since the HD1000 doesn't have any ventilation holes. I can say that they're not loud, though. I'm using a Targus one right now and can't even tell if it's on.
Hold on.. I'll plug it into the HD1000 to see if its USB will power it... Yup, works a treat. Might be worth a try...
