I have just bought a Toshiba RD-XS34, and I am pleased with it except for one thing!! The fan noise!!!!. It is not really that loud, but it is distracting when watching a DVD at a quiet section. Short of enclosing it, can anything be done? What would happen if the fan was disconnected? Would it do any damage apart from the guarantee? Perhaps I am being too fussy? Do all recorders with hard drive have fans and are they noisy? Any help please.
