Can the fan on an RTV5040 be made to shut off when the unit is turned off.

My fan runs non-stop all the time. Is there a software update that can be installed to make this fan turn off when Im not using the DVR?

Acutally, the unit is never "off", the only thing the power button controls is it providing video output and live recording. So, it is always running, thinking about things, recording shows, getting updates, etc. Anyway, it never actually powers off, and as such, the fan never stops running. You could consider trying to quiet the fan either by installing a quieter fan or by slowing down the fan. If you search, you will find several articles about quieting the fan.
