M2000 running hot

Sun Aug 05, 2007 9:02 pm

I have three M2000s and one runs noticeably warmer than the other two. The case is much warmer to the touch - not hot, just quite a bit warmer. Is this normal?

The should feel about the same. Can you try swapping power adapters, and see if the problem follows the adapter?

I checked the voltages on two of them, and the hot Roku shows 23.88VDC. The cool Roku shows 23.94VDC. Swapping adapters results in cool getting hot. Clearly it isn't a voltage problem.

I have the hot Roku sitting on top of my Moon I-3 amplifier, and the others are sitting alone on shelves. It looks like the aluminum chassis of the hot Roku is absorbing heat from the amplifier.

So I guess it is just the efficiency of aluminum. The Moon generates heat, which passes upwards through the air, and the Roku absorbs it.
