Re: NowTV Stick overheating - more than 110C?!!?!

I’m clocking 101 degrees C with the Stick on, but just quietly idling.

 

I don’t know if it goes up if I start streaming; if it works like a PC , it would. I’m trying that next.

 

But the Stick is gently warm to the touch, not the boiling hot that the temperature reading above indicates.

 

And very comparable to what the back of the TV is at anyway, given the warmth rising from the vents.

 

This is on a 32in Samsung HD TV, wall mounted across a corner on a double extending arm, so running in free air.

 

The comparable downstairs TV with nothing plugged in to it feels the same, so it’s not the load from the Stick making the TV warm.

 

Further bulletins as events warrant.

Re: NowTV Stick overheating - more than 110C?!!?!

An hour of Big Little Lies, a suitably steamy drama, got it up to 102. The metal of the HDMI connector was uncomfortable, but not impossible, to hold, which would put it in the 50s.
