Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

I've finished sorting the O2 I had to deal with, so I'll be dealing with the adapters I've received next week, will email the five people over the weekend (it's my bday tomorrow, so taking a little break today/tomorrow, brother visiting).

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

Trippynet, normally I'd just use RM (ie. airmail) for items like this, ie. lightweight.

uunix, ok! Did you reply to my last email btw? Not sure...

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

For those getting their units from me, I have received the box, just gotta finish off an urgent O2 shipment and then I can sort them out.

:D

Presumably though the config on the Fuel will all have to be SD video though, yes?

Re: Dmedia6 .. Does such a thing exist? UK

I'll be impressed if you can get Flame/Smoke working with the DM6, as it was never officially supported by Discreet. But then, neither was the Fuel platform as a whole.

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

I'll contact everyone once the adapters arrive (they're in transit atm). Please don't send anything until I've worked out the shipping for each recipient, etc. For those who wish to use PayPal, I recommend having a high enough normal +ve balance so that you can employ the family/friends option (mean...

Re: how things should be shipped properly

Cardboard round the sides is a bad idea, it doesn't absorb shocks, just passes them straight through. I'd use a bigger box, and hate peanuts you may but they work well in my experience. Also, not enough layers of bubblewrap, I use six layers (1" bubbles).

Re: Beware of eBay's Global Shipping Program

Clearly it does not work for many others; it has a terrible reputation in general. One should not use GSP if at all possible.

[quote="kubatyszko"]Geez. I should be charging $500 for those adapters :P Then nobody would buy them. :D > 75 is actually not bad, even for a determined hobbyist / purist. Assuming the company actually IS able to repair the PSU. ... They've done one already for someone I know. I have three...

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

Exactly. :D Btw, it's a chunk more than that for an HP 460W. ;)

However, I was told the company in question would charge about 75 UKP for a repair, so actually pretty good. I regret now throwing away some duff PSUs in earlier years. :\

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

If you can find a company with the relevant skilled staff, original PSUs can be repaired. I'll be doing this soon with three units.
