    My average temperature is 116. Is this normal or will it cause problems? I have another unit that has 107 average temperature.

    Hi: 136°, Lo: 120°, Ave: 125° ... and nearly three years in the same location running about that warm. No worries.

    Did you install a new fan in your unit?

    You do not OWN the box! Screw it if the darn thing heats up because guess what? Not your problem. Mine is 127 high, 110 average, and 90 low.

    I hope you make these same comments to your friends before they loan you any tools or equipment... ... ...

    FYI- Some people do opt to purchase their receivers. And whether we lease or own, we should exercise reasonable measures to care for the equipment. Not only is it simply the right thing to do, it means we're doing our part to ensure we can enjoy our service without interruptions.

    You have to be real stupid to opt in to buy one! As for friends, I don't have any because I can not stand STUPID people. If the company really cares about temperature, let them put the money out to replace the fan and fix the problem! Hmm.... lets think, companies could care less about recalling products because they don't want to put a simple fee bucks out. That will actually be a big improvement and save money in the long round but they are BULL HEADED. (DishNetwork, DirectTV, Ford, etc) I have proof if anyone wants to see it! I'm still really upset about this topic because companies charge you upfront for the freakin UNIT, then charge you a montly fee to RENT it, monthly fee to use the DVR function, and then the usual monthly programming fee. Its not an open and shut purchase. You have fees, and even more fees to make it work! Complain to the companies that took your money and still are taking your money every month for it WORK! If you do call and complain... guess WHAT? they only send you out a refurbished unit that 9 out of 10 times has more problems then a simple temperature issue! (personal experience with 10 cases) I'm really not in the mood today for stupid people!

    Yeah, another one. Damn. And stop calling ppl, you look as a person from same category.

    Back to the question - I own it, I'm engineer and after research the issue I did find a solution ( engineering one), implemented it and did share with ppl ( and those Dish designer who missed key point of build cooling system ) by postin in Internet.

    The solution is disconnect old fan, install new one and keep running it at low voltage 24/7. Details and pictures, step by step process posted at other site.

    My new 722 seems to run far cooler than my 622 -- why would that be?

    Many factors, first one - location and air flow. Plus you will see the changes of temp measures not often.

    Wow. I didn't realize I you were the one and only SMART person on the planet. Do you have some special salutation you'd prefer we use when we address you? If not, have some suggestions.

    But THIS topic, is not about YOU... it's about the OP and his inquiry. The OP merely asked what was the 'normal' operating temperature for the unit. The rest of us are trying to help him.

    To add stats to the others for comparison, mine are:
    High: 140
    Low: 114
    Avg.: 127

    Anyone know when the the counters for this reset? Does it survive a hard reboot, or are these averages from the day the box was put into service?

    Yeah, it will survive hard/cold reboot. Nobody knows how the numbers updating; but checking weekly does show the difference.
