Well I just opened the IRD and decided that the dual fans under the HD will not fit. Also not enough room in the left front corner for an inside top mounted fan. Next choice is in the rear just in front of SAT ant inputs after I drill a number of air holes in the top of the case. Any comments ?

Is your unit running hot? If not why bother? The top of the case should be slightly warm to the touch and the bottom considerably hotter as they use the base as a heat sync. Both of my units have always run cool with 120 gb drives too. If anything raise the utv 3/4 inch to let the air get under it. My mulitswitch is a channel master connected to a plus dish . The switch is is solid state requires no additional power source. UTV passes power on through the switches which uses a little then passes the balance of the dc to the lnbs to operate.
