DM500 just died - what next? - 03-July-2010, 12:20

My DM500 has just packed up and refuses to boot. Dreamup can connect to the box via the null modem and up until yesterday I was able to flash the box. Now I can't flash it or upload new images.

I've pretty much given up on it and I'm looking for suggestions for a replacement that is HD and possibly a PVR as well.

I'm also toying with the idea of building a new media centre, has anyone tried to combine the two?

jtag is still an option
take the box apart, maybe bad soldering + heat makes connections loose

I've considered it. Does JTAG'ing work with a serial connection or only a male parallel connection?

I could always use this as an excuse to upgrade.... :)

ok, I did the JTAG and it started the download then paused after 1%. I left it for 10 minutes and it never increased, so I restarted but it would no longer connect. Then the power light flickered and went off...

I need to buy a new receiver capable of running cccam. What's good without being very expensive?
