    I'm looking for something pretty simple, but it probably doesn't exist. If it doesn't, I'm thinking it should. My Series 1 with its newly installed THIRD hard disk in six years is running pretty close to unacceptably hot, 48 degrees. Is there a QUIET standard electronic component sized box except for maybe height with nothing but a fan in it blowing air out the top, so that I could set my Tivo unit directly on top of it and my Tivo would have air blowing underneath it at all times? Okay, so the two would need maybe a couple of inches separation between the two so my Tivo wouldn't heat up the fan box. Essentially all I'm looking for is a convenient way to place a fan to blow air EXACTLY where I need it, not some jerry-rigged noisy thing squeezed-clamped to some ledge and ready to fall and blowing air everywhere but where it's needed. Too Rube Goldberg to make any sense?

    San Diego,...

    They make these things for laptop computers, I see no reason why it wouldn't work for a Tivo also..

    Here's something else along the lines of what you're looking for. Note I have no prior knowledge of the company, can't vouch for the quality or service, and don't know what their prices are like.
