Arrow HR20 700 USB Port

I have an HR20 700 and it's internal temp runs about 122 F. It is in an enclosed cabinet and I don't have anywhere else to put it.

Is the USB port on the back of the unit active?

I wanted to get a USB powered fan and hook it into it. To help keep the unit cool.

I was looking @ a USB laptop cooler pad that is ran via a usb cable, to put under unit, don't know if this will work, just an idea.

They say HEAT is the #1 killer of electronics.

Any idea's, please let me know.

Thanks.

Yes, the USB port on the HR20-700 will provide power for a laptop cooler pad. If you look in the Directv section you will see there are a ton of people doing this.
