    So, the fan in my Romio basic is dying (obvious bad bearing noises) and needs to be replaced. Has anyone (a) found a source for a replacement fan for this model, and (b) managed to swap the fan successfully?

    It should be simple to get the fan out, but unfortunately it was designed in such a way that the main board needs to be removed to get at the bottom fan screws. Very silly. Anyone know a trick to getting the board out?

    There's a youtube video of a guy that lubed the fan, with it in place.

    you might want to skip to about 13 minutes in.

    If/when the fan dies in my roamio. I'm just going to install an external fan, it won't be pretty, but will provide plenty of cooling for the mobo/cpu and hdd.
