What kind of enclosure and power source do you use for your fan?  My
InfiniTV 6 ETH has been pretty reliable(*) over the years, but I do
get concerned about how hot it runs.

(*)Though, not as reliable as my HDHomerun Prime.  Also, I have the
following patch in my personal code base.  It helped at one time, but
I think it was mainly an issue with my cable provider.  I'm not sure
if it's still needed.
