    Thanks, Hasan, I'd been considering one of those.

    The person report to me stated that's a CPU fan.

    You're going to make me pull it out of the entertainment center and take more photographs, just to prove it to you?

    I have 2 HR24-100,s one replaced a bad HR20-700 just 2 weeks ago and will say it is a pleasure not hearing the noise from the old box.these 2 boxes seem good I have a question not sure if just a odd thing or if anyone else had this too.The thing is twice on the one box in a 10 day period when I tried to watch a list program it froze and had blank screen even after FF in case some of it didn,t record or was interrupted .This didn,t work hit exit and went back to live viewing and try to hit pause then play but that froze as well did a reboot and it was fine.Now today the other box did the same thing so, I just rebooted it and when it came back up it was fine.Sorry for being so wordy I figured it was just a little glitch at first I don,t mind rebooting once in awhile it just seem odd.Thanks for any input .

    I have a HR24-100 and the fan noise is loud on mine too.

    Does anyone know what size fan is used inside the -100? What sort of connector is required to plug into the board?

    I'm thinking if there are several brands of the same size, of trying to install a different fan that is perhaps quieter.

    Not a bad idea as long as you OWN the dvr. Leased models should not be opened.

    Winters,...
    Thanks for the feedback. Of course it's more than useful if you have equipment that'll connect only via optical, or if one simply prefers it.

    However, there seem to be no other advantages of that, esp. now that HDMI is upon us--- or with us if you prefer!
