Re: V6 box

Hello Marky_mark

 

Sorry to hear of the V6 issues and thnaks for taking the time to contact us via the forums.

 

How long has this been happening for? Is there plenty of ventilation around the V6 including above to maintain the airflow?

 

Does this happen straight after booting up or is it over a longer period of use?

 

Rob

Re: V6 box

Thanks for letting me know Marky_mark. Do you have more than one box in the property? Is this the only box you're currently experiencing this with?

Re: V6 box

Just for information...

The V6 has a fan that sucks air in from the base, across the Hard Disk in a lower compartment and then blows this (now warm air) across the processor and video processing chips to exit at the top of the box.

There are two moving devices in the box that create some noise. The Hard Disk and this Fan.
For effective cooling the fan needs to be operation properly and the inlet and vents must be clear (from dust).

Do you hear any excessive noise (or no noise) from the box?

Do you have any specific hot spots on the box?
