    They look similar to this one. Only I have wheels on mine.

    All my TiVos, UPSs, and PCs I put on wire shelving like this now. Plus it makes it easier for me to clean since I can easily move them away from the wall. And they come in all shapes and sizes so they can fit inside a closet or smaller spaces.

    Would the overheating cause a HD to crash? Mine is 68, is that a problem?

    It might cause it to fail or fail more quickly.

    An ODT (on-die temp of the (likely Broadcom chip) 68 C is 154.4 F. That's pretty hot.

    With the AC Infinity fans that I have running, I checked earlier tonight and had my ODT down to 42 C which is 107.6 F.

    I removed the cable card door and put the fan under the cable card -- blowing up. Then a spacer on the left side to hold the TiVo level.
