Is it a unit that has intake and outflow air vent son the bottom?

If so, what can happen when it is in a confined space is that the warm air flows out the outflow vent and right in to the intake vent.

Some people (myself included), have performed the "rolled paper trick". Roll up a piece of construction paper, slide it under the TiVO between the vents, and let it expand. Granted, the warm air can circulate around anyway, but the issue is the internal temp, and doing this may very well lower that some.

I did this (with a machine no where near the high temp range), and it lower my TiVO's temp about 4 degrees.
