Dish Wally Receiver - HOT!!!

I noticed that my Dish Wally Receiver gets very hot even when turned off. Is this normal?

It was so hot that I unplugged the unit while RV is parked in my driveway.

We have a dish 211 receiver and ours gets warm. I try to keep a good amount of space under and on top for the air to circulate. But cut off the power when not in use. yes the dish has to go and start over again looking for a signal. Even off it will still keep communications with the satellite.
