    ..well I watched a film last night as it happens. The player was on most of the evening and it didn't get remotely hot. The disc wasn't hot either. This was with DVD, haven't tried with CD yet.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news Mr Jason B, but it sounds like your player has a problem. :(

    Might need it but as i say ours has run in an enclosed space and does get hot, probably not the best for it but needs must.
