I also saw cooler guys sell dual fans and temp sensors to turn them on and off. I don't mind spending a little extra to protect my gear.
I am using the single fan and it keeps the 886 cool to the touch. It is silent and turns on and off with the 886. Just install it over the back right area sucking air out of the 886. There is a video on Coolerguys site that explains how to set it up.
Did you try to use a house fan to see if that cures the video drop out problem? I wouldn't waste your money on the fan kit until you verify that is what the problem is.
Since it has happened with more than one source I would say the problem lies with either the 886 or the HDMI cable from the 886 to the tv. I am leaning towards the 886 being the problem.
