    Is there a fan in the TiVo mini? If so, can you hear the fan? What kind of noise does it make, a "buzz" or a "hum"?

    If there's no fan inside, how warm/hot does it get?

    Any pictures floating around of the internals?

    There's no fan and it does not get hot.

    My Minis get hot in comparison to the temps from my Elite boxes. My MBT in the SYS info screen on both my Minis are around 47C to 50C.

    While my two Elites MBT are around 37C to 40C.

    Are you uncomfortable with the heat they give off?

    How many inches clearance above the mini would you suggest I leave?

    I have around six inches of clearance above mine and six inches on each side. And nothing producing heat below it.

    I have no problem with the temps it has though. They have been running fine so far. But I do have the BestBuy 4 year extended warranty on them.
