    I have a phillips dsr7000 and it's really loud, same deal with everyone else? I like my bedroom to be silent when I sleep; wondering if there is anything I can do.

    I hear you can't hear the new R15's. Almost totally silent.

    You think if I called and complained to retention would they help me out?

    Bwahahahaha!!! No.
    My HDVR2 is loud also. My now getting dusty R15's(read not connected) were actually quiet like my R10.
    Always possible to change out the fan. Find out what size and what ype of connection, and get on newegg.com to order one.

    thx tonedeaf. Newegg is awesome, I might just do that.

    p.s. You're getting close to that 1k dvd limit, why not get clone dvd and double your collection at 20% the cost?

    Put the unit in a closet and use an IR extender to control it.

    I'll just install a new fan, I'd have to go all the way around the room with audio/video; about 40 feet along the walls.

    I have both the R10 and R15 and they both seem quiet. Note: i just received ANOTHER R15 today via FedEx b/c the other one was not recording (all the bugs/glitches everyone else has listed) - i'm afraid to plug it up! If it does the same.. i know i'm up a creek w/ no paddle! It's like how many do you have to try before ONE WORKS!? ughhh. On top of all of that - the UPS guy knocks on my door and delivers my "FREE GIFT" from D* and instead of the lap dvd player, i got a regular small dvd player! I called them and they are "looking into it"... ughh GET IT RIGHTTTTTTTTTTTT. :)

    Ah that sucks, I'm expecting a dvd player soon. It better be a portable one, or I'm gonna flip.
