HDMI 4X4 switch fan noise

I have an HDMI 4X4 switch in my motorhome for TV source selection that seems to have a lot of fan noise. Is this common with this type of equipment?

I have the same Matrix 4X4 switcher in my coach. That unit does not have a fan. I wish it did as it gets very hot. I installed a fan cooling unit on top of it. If you are having fan noise it is not coming from the matrix unless someone added one.

Hdmi fan noise

I recently replaced my hdmi 4x4 matrix box from the original factory unit and also from the original supplier (pace). The updated unit now comes with installed fans. I agree, they are noisy.

Hdmi 4by4 matrix

Replaced with the exact unit as the Winnebago original. Updated hdmi matrix is equipped with internal fans. Hope that helps.

I was told that when they were servicing my coach prior to me picking it up, they had to replace the matrix switch. So I must have the new version with the fans.

Do you turn the unit off when not in use? Or do you just keep it running all the time?

Thanks,
