Heat output -- is 722 better than 622?
Posted 30 April 2012 - 10:45 AM
The unit works fine, I can hear the fan, it's the ridiculously high amount of heat generated that I find unconsionable, and it annoys me to have to keep the door propped open after I designed a well-functioning cabinet to start with.
I dislike this one feature of the receiver enough to replace it, and one of the remote controls has worn out, giving me another excuse. If the 722 is a lot better on heat generated when the unit is turned "off," I'll replace it with a 722. Otherwise, I'll replace the remote and keep waiting. Or, should I just turn the thing off when I'm not watching TV and let it natter at me about having to update the program information? Or, am am I missing something that would reduce the standby power draw and heat output?
Thank you for your advice.

.....I have a 622 receiver that works fine, but I have to leave the cabinet door propped open because the thing puts out a tremendous amount of heat even when it is turned off.....
I am sure you have heard that before, but many of us have bought a laptop computer cooler to keep the receiver cooler. I bought one of the Targus Chill Mats for my 722k, but there are others, as well.
