So I just got the monoprice dual band IR transmitter so when I am watching movies I can close the doors of my cabinets so the room is completely dark, but I can still control everything. It works FANTASTIC, but obviously with the cabinet closed the receiver gets warm. It is a Yamaha RX-V765. Anyone have some ideas l, or devices, that are inexpensive that I put in the cabinet to keep it cool? I was thinking a small fan to move the air over it.

Yes...but I am trying to find smaller options. Already did a ton of research on them.

Check this out.. if you have a USB in the rack somewhere ... just plug this fan in and put it on top of the receiver. It will VASTLY improve your temp.

Super quiet and I leave mine on 24/7/365.

Will my Oppo BDP-103's USB connection power this fan? I use a Lexicon Pre-Pro which does not have any USB ports.

Two easiest ways to do it are either installing fans or opening up the back.

I can't speak directly to the Oppo but my receiver, Sony Blu-ray, cable box and Xbox all have UBS ports; they will all power that fan; and they all stay on even when the device power is off.

I bought a thermaltake a00007 (or something like that) fot $19 shipped off of ebay thru newegg. Funny, thru newegg direct I would have to pay $10 shipping. Off ebay, no shipping! Good reviews and even more airflow!

Update....just got the Thermaltake AF0007 in the mail. Put it on the top of the receiver with it sucking the hot air out of the AVR. HUGE difference. A+ in my book!
