    Got Sky+ installed this week and it's ace. The only thing that concerns me is that the box is constantly warm, even when in standby. Is this normal? It's not too hot to touch but I'd have thought that when it's sitting there doing nothing, there'd be no heat generated at all. There's a faint whirring from within the box at all times.

    Even in standby,some of the electronics are powered up....the whirring will be from the cooling fan,or hard drive.
    As long as it has sufficient ventilation it should be just fine.

    Begs the question...

    How much is sufficient ventilation?
