[mythtv-users] OT: DC to AC power adapter wrong size

Hey everyone, sorry for the off-topic message. I didn't know where
else to post this.
I just got a PW-70A for my ME6000. Before purchasing the PW-70A, I
e-mailed the folks at Logic Supply (logicsupply.com) with a question
regarding compatibility of a specific AC adapter with the PW-70A, and
referenced them to a page with measurements of the size of the plug on
this adapter. They responded and said it is a size that will fit, and
will be compatible. I just received the AC adapter and the PW-70A and
they just barely do NOT fit together. (Cannot slip the DC end of the
adapter onto the PW-70A, although by looking at the ends of each they
look very close to fitting together.)
I don't know if the measurements on the web site were off or if I got
bad advice from Logic Supply, but to make a long story short, is it
acceptable to take some pliers or something and stretch out the DC end
of the adapter a tiny bit to get it to fit onto the PW-70A? Or will
this cause serious damage that I'd rather avoid? (The adapter is
otherwise completely compatible with the PW-70A -- 12 volts, etc, etc).
Thanks so much for any help and advice!
