    I have a Premiere on lifetime service with upgraded 2TB HDD. It's been running fine for OTA-only since 2012 except for having to lubricate or replace the fan every 12-18 months due to noise issues. Just wondering whether anyone has tried running a Premiere fanless, possibly with the addition of heatsinks or modifying the enclosure for better convective cooling. I wouldn't mind getting a few more years out of this unit (even though TiVo considers it to be at the end of its useful life) but without the persistent fan issues.
