Good point . . . I wonder if they will run for years at such high temperatures. I fastened the 2 Joeys, amp, modulator, power strip and all the power adaptors to a board. My final installation is like a wall mounted shelf about 2 feet below the floor framing. I was thinking mounting a single 80mm computer case fan above the 2 Joey's to keep them a little cooler.


Possibly. I know my Joey does better temp wise when it's on its vertical stand. A little more air circ couldn't hurt.

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.

Good point about mounting the Joey's vertically. Since all my equipment is fully screwed down to a wall mount shelf, I could orient the shelf vertically and the Joey's would have free air below and above. The high thermal output from the Joeys would create pretty good airflow compared to having them sitting flat on a horizontal shelf blocking air from below.

Thanks for that idea.

Anytime. It's really surprising how hot those little guys get.

I noticed my Joey temps started to rise. Joey was installed 26 Feb 13 in my garage. When I mounted a fan on it 25 Mar 13 the temps were High 145, Low 111, and Average 123. Today the temps are 145, 55, and 100. It is not pretty but it works.

Here's a suggestion that will work. Spend a few more dollars and lease a few more joeys and stop being cheap
