Sorry, the 722 procedure doesn't fit. Please let me know the steps for the hopper. Thanks

I do search first. That's how I got to this thread in the first place. I'll search Long's posts.

I just scratched my head :D ... first post has a quota of JL shortcut to the values.

It's always beneficial to any poster to look into first post of TS|OP ;).
And read the thread's posts - some of them carry useful info, not just particular temperature readings ...

Sorry, I actually had reviewed it and missed that detail.

I've lifted the Hopper up by an inch or so and have one fan helping to blow in on the left (facing) and another helping exhaust on the right.

I'll report on the temps later, and then in July/August when the air on the garage side of the cabinet can reach 130ish.

I haven't looked at this site for some time and now noticed there is renewed interest in Hopper temps. Has anyone reported or know of Hopper or Joey failure due to high temps?

I've had my Hopper/Joey (1 each) installation since mid July 2012 and have had no problems of any kind.

At the advice of some contributors I installed a Thermaltake fan and tried several configurations. My current Hopper setup is: Hopper is elevated about 1 inch in an eqp. cab with ample space on 3 sides and open front. The fan is flush on the right of front side and draws air from within the hopper. The cabinet top, bottom and sides are barely warm to the touch.

The temps are: Ambient in the area is 75 °F.
Internal reported on: 11/25/12 109/98/100 °F.
" " " 3/16/13 107/96/98 °F.

My Joey is upright in its stand and runs much warmer but not too hot to touch.

Again has anyone had or heard of Hopper/Joey failures due to temp?

May 27th readings - 118/107/113 (it's only reached about 102 so far this season here in Phoenix)

 

But what's weird is that my March 18th numbers were 123/69/107.

 

Does this only report the last month or sometime?

We're finishing a stretch of 110+ here in Phoenix. My garage is where the cabinet with the Hopper backs into and the garage gets morning sun. So you can imagine...

 

Today's temps are better than I even thought:

 

123/111/114

 

Hopper on 1" blocks with fans on both sides blowing in the proper directions.

No, the projector is hanging from the ceiling and all the rest are on 3 shelves bolted to the wall.

I'm thinking of adding another shelf or widening the three I have.

I am also using a laptop college under both of my Hoppers. It has made a huge difference to the touch feel of the temperatures coming off the top of the Hoppers. That is good enough for me. That, and the fact that I have no freezes, no artifacts or any other Hopper troubles, and have not for the year I have had this set up.

placebo  :D

 

I have the laptop cooler and the hopper and can make tests with measuring temp of components

not the DVR's case: who care if it's warm or hot ?  if major parts are cooking inside .... slowly and steady
