Like any electronic gear, DVR needs air ventilation to keep the equipment at a certain temperature range to prevent the electronic components from overheating. Overheated components will cause instability, malfunction and damage leading to a shortened component lifespan.

Hence, ideally a DVR should be placed at an open, airy place. But in my Network Attached Storage posting, I had pointed out that many DVR users actually hide their DVR in an enclosed space to prevent it from being vandalized or taken away.

This practice had actually forced the DVR to operate in an overheated condition and became unstable, shorter lifespan or malfunction. The solution can be found in my NAS posting.

Meanwhile check out this pride of lions seeking refuge from the scorching sun under the shade of the wing before they got overheated.
