I installed a HD tuner yesterday that seems to like to run fairly warm. After test configuring it sitting on top of my directTv receiver I noticed that it warmed up the entire sat receiver also even though it wasn't powered on. Is this something to worry about, could it possibly damage another component from the radiated heat? I was able to rearrange my entertainment center a little bit and gave the HD tuner a seperate shelf with room on top for it to cool for now, but I know I will expand it in the future.
