Indeed I wanted more storage space, more cooling, and frankly the white bent box just looks "wrong" to me too.
So I had this idea to move my bolt guts into my Roamio case.
The two boards are incredibly similar,
I removed the middle support bar to keep it from shorting on the bolt.
Enlarged the coax hole to accommodate the remote finder button.
Enlarged the optical out hole to accommodate the coax connector.
Created opening for the optical out.
Moved by bending the rear motherboard mounting tab about 1/4 inch to align.
Stalled ATM trying to find a good option for 21pin Sata left angle combo cable that will reach from the stock hard drive mount to the Bolt connectors. If anyone knows a suitable cable please let me know, I likely will end up with "up angle" adapter and then regular sata cables.
Next I will try to modify the optical lens from the bolt to direct the onboard LEDs to the Roamio front panel.
