What does it sit on??

I have that model, it can get hot since the unit it self is one big heat sink. Since I have mine on top of a DVR I had to place 3" spacers to seperate them so heat can vent.

The Samsung Blu ray sits on it's own shelf by itself with 4 inches of air space above the closest Cable Box below. I seperated the two for that very reason but the Samsung Blu ray still gets "very hot". Just curoious if yours gets that hot being you can not leave you hand on the bottom of it more than 1 second ? I have never had a piece of gear that genertaes that much heat whihc can't be good for the life span of the unit. Any other issues you have noticed about this unit ? "Thanks"
