V6 box fire risk

Hi I'm getting the new V6 box in a week, but I'm worried about a possible fire risk as there has been a local house fire that was down to a faulty V6 box, the people weren't home and a spark from the faulty box caused a fire that destroyed their home. I'm worried that this may occur with my box

Re: V6 box fire risk

There haven't been any reports of the V6 presenting a fire hazard. Fires caused by TV set-top boxes are extremely rare. The risk is no greater than for the older TiVo & V+ boxes, or even any other piece of electrical equipment. I wouldn't worry too much, make sure it has good ventilation and don't put anything on top of it. Also make sure all connections are plugged in properly, loose ones can cause arcing.
