I'd think twice about that.  Any electrical apparatus needs air circulation to prevent it overheating.

Re: Hiding a tivo box

The box must have good ventilation so any enclosure should need good ventilation. The remote uses IR so needs direct line of site to the sensor on the front of the box. Both of these requirements are difficult to achieve in a cupboard.

Re: Hiding a tivo box

you can use IR repeaters or if you are happy using a phone or tablet as a remote you can use tv anywhere for control.

The V6 box uses RF so the remote will work though cupboard
