DECA box gets really hot!

    My HR-22 was having some PQ issues(pixelization and pausing) so I decided to check the connections behind the box.

    The DECA box was really hot and the coax cable f connector going "Towards" the LNB was so hot , I could only touch it for 5 seconds. The other f connection was warm.

    I don't like a hot box like this laying on my wood furniture.
    I'm somewhat concerned.

    Since there is a post of mine in there, seems like the same thing with you. I just grabbed mine again and while it isn't "cool", at the same time I can hold on to the connector and not find it "too hot to hold on to".

    I'm just afraid the the warm-hot connector could melt some other wire behind the box, say the power cord.

    "My hand" says that won't happen.
    Whatever could melt, would have to have a fairly low melting point.

    actually sounds as if this one may be hotter then others, others say they could could hold it.
