    Is it normal for our DVR to run constantly and generate heat? It is in a TV stand, on it's own shelf, and we keep the glassed door open to allow the heat to dissipate.

    Thanks,
    TCahill

    DVRs are always buffering and always "on", so they always generate heat. The question is: is it getting enough airflow, and/or is it OVERheating?

    Sounds like it is not "overheating". Not getting any error messages, perhaps not enough airflow, thanks for your replies.

    Thanks for your reply. No error messages. Perhaps I will change its location to allow more airflow.

    I had an error message that mine hit 144 degrees, I then opened the glass doors and let the ac in, and it dropped down quickly.

    FYI

    To find out if heat is a problem press

    menu - 6 - 3 - counters
    then page down using

    until you see HDD temperatures.​

    I checked mine after the hard drive died.

    It showed a maximum HDD temp. of 145 degrees.
