Advertisements I've seen several posts about people considering taking the Bolt's components and putting them into an entirely new case so I'd thought I'd start a thread just for this and get some thoughts on how to do this. The main purpose to do this is, regardless of what you think of it aesthetically, its a poor quality plastic shell that is inferior quality & design compared to any other TiVo going back to Series 1, or even my cheapo Time Warner Cable standard issue tuner box. Most egregiously, it lacks proper heat dissipation that could impact the lifespan of the device components. TiVo could have easily put some holes for ventilation in the case or raised up the bottom for basically no cost. But since they didn't and people are raising theirs on bottle caps, using laptop coolers under and putting holes and fans on top of the case I figured maybe there is a more elegant solution. Ideally there would be a solution that checks these boxes: Made of off-the-shelf parts widely available Have better heat control options (ventilation holes, space for case fan(s) Accommodate a 3.5" HD for better upgrade options Be as cost effective as possible (i.e. no $300 HTPC cases) Easy enough to do that someone with some basic tech skills and a screwdriver could accomplish As I've started thinking about this a few issues that I noticed are that the Bolt motherboard is not a standard size, it may need to also be mounted higher than usual to accommodate the cable card underneath?, some moving/realigning of the IR sensor and LEDs would likely be needed. Some measurements I took (rough estimates): Motherboard size = 190mm x 155mm (7 1/2" x 6 1/8") Back plate = 184mm x 32mm ( 7 1/4" x 1 1/4") Heatsink = 85mm square (located 1.5" from front of board, 1.25" from back, 2.5" from right, 1.75 from left) Any thoughts on tackling this and what might work?
