Bought after changeover, now dead. Does not even show this error again.


Downloaded uec update file, got a USB stick from Walpole 20 or more km away, held CH+/CH- keys as per update instructions but the unit would not download. Am doing this as UEC suggested flash memory problems.


At least UEC gives a firm repair quote and if one does not accept the quote then it costs $20 for the postage/handling back. This is a PVR model which stopped after a night time recording.


May or may not get it fixed; at least one has a choice now of several models to purchase.


Electrolytic caps look OK and the 'magic smoke' has not escaped from anywhere.


Question: Anything else I can look at to fix it myself??
