Sorry I missed this email.

I have a fan from Amazon which uses a USB type power supply.

I gave up on the HD homerun prime because it kept hanging and rebooting 
itself with a watchdog reboot. It was replaced under warranty and the 
replacement did the same.

I don't know what problem that patch addressed. One problem I have with 
the ceton is once a year or so, a program is recorded completely corrupt 
- random pixels with occasional flashes from the video, sound just beeps 
and buzzes with random snatches of the real audio.
