So nobody but me has the noisy fan issue, huh? Not cool!
I never said nobody I said almost no complaints about the fan.
Yea if the hot air from your TiVo is entering the intake of the PS3 then I can see why the fan would be on high.
It will help to get it on it's own getting cool air thru the intake.
If that doesn't help I'd call Sony support because a noisy fan is not normal on the PS3 like it is on the 360.
