I don't use my SB 500 much, it sits in a rack idle most of the time. I only use it when traveling or walking the dog to follow a game. I have noticed, though, even when I am not accessing any streams, it seems to get pretty slightly warm and the fan runs every 10 minutes or so. Is there a way to hibernate this thing so it doesn't cook itself to death or have a fan failure? I have it sitting on top of my DirecTV recvr and that's warm to the touch, too. I put a thick book between the 2, maybe that will help.
