    I have my DVD player temporarily sitting right on top of my receiver. That's the way it has to be until I get a rack built. I've noticed that the receiver gets really hot. Is this bad and will it ruin these components?

    John, to be brief, YES if you let this continue damage could/can occur.
    If any thing, get some small blocks of wood (make sure there are no splinters to fall into the top of the receiver) and separate the two.

    A couple of 2x4's and then paint them black to match your equipment. This will enhance the visuals of your system.
    A new rack would be the ideal solution

    If your receiver is getting hot I would be careful not to block any of the vents with wood. This could also damage the receiver.

    Those 2 x 4's should be on their side, not flat. Less blockage of the receiver's vents (if there is any at all) and you should have at least 3 inches above your receiver.
    Actually, and 4 reasonably solid identical items in the corners of the DVD player would be suitable, as long as they won't move when you use the DVD player.
    I'm sure I've seen "feet" extenders like that in a store something like RadioShack.
