Yeah there are tons of sites/posts about heat issues on the hdpvr, fan
mods, etc. Definitely worth testing.

Additionally, when is the last time you connected these to a Windows PC to
update their firmware?  AFAIK, it can only be done that way.  If you never
have, it may be worth doing.  You can see the firmware version in
dmesg/syslog... but I don't recall what the most recent version
is(according to what is reported there, which is different than the windows
driver version).
