Put an inline fuse with the same amp rating as the power supply.

I did exactly what is being recommended about a year ago when my transformer started getting really hot. I cut the cord, bought a nice quality accessory adapter (cigarette plug) at Radio Shack (that was fused) and plugged into the Winegard wall plate in the overhead - about 12 inches away from the AVS100HD unit. Has worked flawlessly ever since...
Good luck to you!

Great. - I took a picture just to make sure. Is the plate your Tallinn about the one on the top? That has a amplifier for tv with the antenna? I would assume there is 12v power to that.

Your Winegard plate will work too. Mine is a little older and actually has the cigarette plug built into it. Regardless, there is 12v to the rear for the antenna booster that you can tap off - no problem.

Yes - the wall plate, made by Winegard. Your's has the cable connection and the push button for the over-the-air antenna. Mine is similar but also has a 12 volt adapter plug on the face "plate"... Winegard makes a few different styles...
