I will be putting it in a dedicated theater room, and would like to really only have it be on when I need it. The room is small, and I canerned about heat and noise.

Mine doesn't normally have the fan running while in standby, so it should be plenty quiet. As for heat, it just needs to be well ventilated.

Heat is an issue only if you do not have adequate ventilation space on both sides. You can use supplemental fans to keep the box cool, but then noise starts to be a problem.
