I noticed this earlier when I pulled it out to connect the RGB Scart Cable, could it have something to do with WiiConnect24 because when its off I would have thought it wouldnt be generating heat but with WiiConnect24 enabled it is always on.
Ah yes mine was hot when it was off too!
I'll turn off standby wii connect and see if that helps.
With wii connect 24 standby set to off my wii is cold when off and I get the red standby light rather than the orange one I had previously.
Can't say I've noticed that but I've loads of disk error problems, had to unplug the console of couple of times and leave it unplugged for about five minutes to fix the problem
I don't think it's a good idea to place the wii on top of your pvr, the hard drive in the pvr won't take kindly to the excess heat from the wii and may start to glitch/lock up, heat is a hard drives worst enemy apparantly.....that and hammers, they don't like hammers either.
OK So maybe I will not put it on top of the PVR. Can you all help with sugestions as to where I can put it?
Here is a picture of my setup, I wanted to stick it where the red oval is, and loose my VCR (which I don't use). When I get it on xmas day I will probably stick it where the blue oval is, but in the long term I don note want to stick anything where the blue and green ovals are (I like the clean, uncluttered look). So the only other option is to loose the tape deck (which I no longer use) and put it where the yellow oval is.
What I really need is another shelf, loose the VCR, move the PVR down, and then put the new shelf above PVR, below tape deck and place Wii on that.
So suggestions please? as I am all out of ideas!
