    • Hi Ripper

      How do these people figure this out? The mind boggles as to how the geeky types think.

    • Thanks for that.  I have tried all the suggestions including those on YouTube.  The only new discovery is that apparently I have Error 0102, whatever that means.

      • Error E18/0102 is 'no audio/video' due to a broken cold solder joint on the CPU, GPU or RAM. The tried and tested way of fixing this is to remove the mainboard and pop it into a pre-heated oven until the solder melts and reflows. Seriously. Alternately, use a hot air paint stripper or blow lamp on the board but keep it moving.

        • I saw those "remedies" including wrapping the damned thing in an eiderdown and running it until it melts.  Maybe I should just stick it in the microwave?

  1. GD, does your TV set have a USB port? If so you can stick the old hard drive in an enclosure, about £7 from PC World and plug it straight in.

    Harry – I have no idea how a person can work these things out, but once someone does its all over the forums, then the idea gets improved on. The only one that I can lay claim to was with the early Playstations. Some games wouldn't work due to the crap laser in the DVD drive. My solution was to turn the Playstation umop apisdn. The weight of the disc bought it a tiny bit closer to the laser. Worked most of the time.

    • The back of the TV looks like a power station control room – loads of various connecters, sockets and gizmos….. but no USB slot.  It's about the only thing they forgot to include.

  2. GD, I have an old XBox that your more than welcome to.  I have also installed XBMC on it so it should suit your needs? Drop me a mail if you want it.
