I have HR24-100 DVR and fan was making noise like turbo jet several times a day. Two days ago I got messge on the screen that DVR overheated to 65°C (149°F) and began cooling down proccess. I put my ear to the box, and I didn't hear any fan noise, just very quiet noise of spinning HDD. I called DTV and they said that it looked like fan died. They replacing DVR and don't want back my HR24.

Certain HR24's are not recoverable. My HR22 was noisy, but it didn't overheat. I took an air can to the fan and it seems to have done the trick. Never goes above 100 degrees. Like yours, my DVR is no longer recoverable, so if it acts up again, I have the option of servicing the fan or having Directv send me a replacement.
