Looking for some type of lift in order...

Recommended Posts

AndyD    22

to lift my dvd player a little higher over the dvr cable box that I have. The thing gets extremely hot and it's suggested that there is at least 2 inches of space around the box. The problem is that the stand I have for my tv no longer has space for any type of switch in placement. I tried looking around on the net but I'm not finding anything remotely close to what I'm looking for. Can't imagine I'm the only one who has ever needed one.

You need real racks for your components. It's a good investment, because you WILL fry a component stacking them.

What do you mean by real?? I have the tv stand that goes with my Wega. The problem is that it had only one divider but I have the following..

dvr box

dvd player

xbox

gamecube

svideo switcher

I just don't have space for anything else so at this point I have to stack.

If your cable box gets so hot stacking is a realy bad idea, you could end up with a bad dvr box and a bad DVD player.

What you can do is make a new divider, drill 4 holes in the sides place pins in them and put a plate on them.

All you need is a saw, a drill, 4 pins and a plate, can't be hard to find, right?

Actually, the new dual tuner dvr box suprisingly is not as hot as my older dvr box. I now have it on top of my dvd box and leave the vents unblocked (didn't think I could put it on top as it's huge compared to my dvd player)

btw: Dual tuner dvr boxes are the $hit! :)
