If the air is warm, it is dumping heat that would otherwise eventually affect the componentry, no? It may have a 'standby' setting so the HD is not spinning 24X7, or could have 'sleep' mode. I tried to get one, but didn't offer enough dough on the web auction.. waaahhhh...
I think you would get more response in the area that is all about DVDRs. This one is about Tivo and Dish type recorders. (I think, I am not that experienced here...)
