I'm reasonably sure the audio sync issues are an issue between the hdpvr 
and some STB's, and I find it highly unlikely that the addition of a fan 
with do anything to cure that.

I have a hdpvr without the fan (but still one of the later units).  I 
have a hard time believing that the lock-up issue is related to cooling 
as the room I have the unit is kept between 10 & 15 degrees Celsius 
(50-59 Fahrenheit).  Now as I've said previously, I don't get many 
lockups, but I have had them - though come to think of it, the only 
times I've had the lockups occur is when people have staying over, or 
someone was home sick and the system was being used almost continuously 
for livetv... so maybe I should investigate that a little more.
