I need some help with cooling. I've tried using internal fans, but they make too much noise, as the unit is in our bedroom. I currently have the unit elevated on lego's. Any suggestions? Is it harmful to unplug the unit at night and plug it back in when using it? I've heard of a cyber cooler, but have no experience with it.

Thank you for any suggestions and help

if the noise is from the fan and not the drive, and you have access to a free air shelf out of reach of small children you can try what I did with my dtivo and take the cover off it , disable the fan. I have been using this method for several months now and temperatures have remained marginal.

another option would be to put the unit in another room all together and get yourself a IR to RF converter which will allow you to transmit via your remote through walls.
