    It never fails

    Does everyone else always have to buy 2 of whatever Mini-box makes inoder to get one that works? I had to buy 2 ITPS's to get one that worked. Sadly I'm in the same boat with the M2-ATX. The AMP remote on lead puts out about 4 volts, nowhere close to enough to trigger a relay or an amp to turn on. So I do have one of the working M2's that will boot a M10000 with no problems however I've yet to find a way to trigger my amp. So I ran another relay off the 12 volt feed from the PS to trigger the amp. I have turn off pop but not turn on pops. Sadly for $95 I thought it would work better than it is. I'll look for a cold solder at some point but doubt that's the cause.

    Don't you return the one that doesn't work for replacement?
    Or are you buying from a private seller where there's no warranty?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I do return it. It just ****es me off that I give a said store $100 for parts. Rush order, Priority handling yada ya. To get it nearly 3 weeks later. Then have to send it back for RMA, another 3 weeks. so for a month and a half I've paid for something that doesn't work, so I get clipped on the warranty and the use for a good amount of time. And so far it's only be with every mini-box product I've delt with.

    BTW nice quote. I love the Report.
