Other Hopper temps:

Hi: 125
Lo: 80
Avg: 113

By the way, both Hoppers are out in the open. Plenty of airflow.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Anyone know how to reset the temp counters?

Just got installed on Sunday. My Hopper does not have the cooling fan 'flow director'.

My temps are:

131
111
84

There is no way to reset it - perhaps if you'll find out how to clean NVRAM for the model ?

I didn't see any reply to the question about voiding the warranty by opening the case or adding additional cooling. I haven't checked the actual temp (I'll do it tonight and post), but I noticed when I picked up a remote that was sitting next to the Hopper that it was really hot.

The Hopper itself felt hotter than I've ever felt any other computer or consumer electronics. Can't be good for long term operation.

If you own it - no limit for modifications; if not, well... opening the case and don't damaging internal guts ...
Only HDD is protected from removing it out of HDD's holder by self-destructing void label (while the holder with the HDD could be removed without touching the label).

My readings look higher than average:

134
87
122

Mine's in an open cabinet and the ambient temp is always 75. Looks like I need to change something. I guess the next step is to open it up and see what I'm working with.

Now 123/116/118
I installed some spacers on the bottom of the Hopper to give it more airlflow underneath. It appears to be working. It is in a "pocket" in my cabinet. Front open, sides and back closed. I may drill holes in the back of the cabinet to improve airflow.

Hopper:
hi 122
lo 118
avg 118

"Average"?... think I'll add the legs and see if that helps. I do get laggy button operation quite often (worse than my old 722).

In enclosed entertainment center. I'm not sure how it figures out the average because it appears to be inaccurate.

Thought I would give my input for my system which is the VIP922/wMT2 so alot of you can feel better about your temps,mine is on top of my entertainment center because when it's not it runs about 8 degrees warmer:

High:132.

Average:122.

Low:100.

The HIC was placed ontop of the Joey1, and it was hot. I have moved it to the side, this should help. I have placed the Joey2 into a vertical position in the cabinet which should provide for better venting.
