Streaming Stick Suggestion

I noticed the Roku streaming stick overheats a lot, maybe there could be some vent slots on the stick so the heat can escape. Or maybe some thermal tape can some how be applied to the stick and that may help the heat problem. This is just a suggestion.  We LOVE the Roku but, after using the streaming stick if we were first time users we wouldn't like it after that happens, but it can be improved with the said suggestion above.  We are not technicians but because we are in the AC field we tend to problem solve things like this.

Roku offers a free Hdmi extender that allows the device to sit further away from the TV's heat or if your HDMI port configuration doesn't allow the stick to seat properly because of orientation.

Re: Streaming Stick Suggestion

They sent us one and it didn't solve the problem with the overheating.  We  were hoping that it would but it didn't.  That is why I made the suggestion in the first place.  Thank you anyways!
