How come cable boxes are so many different sizes? My bro has an HD one that is big and loud. My aunt has a set top box that is also big but not as big as the HD, and I have a really small one.

Differing manufacturers, manufacture dates, and different cable companies have different specs for the boxes they use.

DVRs need more space because of the hard drive. But the main considerations for cable box size apart from the actual number of components are RF shielding/proximity of components and ventilation/cooling. A smaller cable box would likely run too hot. It needs room to breathe.
