WoW that is A LOT!

But, it sounds like it is getting too hot...

I would try getting a different one....

Either that or you are getting a voltage on your cable line in and that voltage could cause the system to heat up. I have seen this happen with some sat receivers...

Yea... You shouldn't put anything on top of a Receiver or amp if they are going to be generating a lot of heat.... :fyi:
