L200 are shingled, I don't see L200 on mine, it looks like ACA100 (they're
still installed) and have worked well for some time.
now my database is corrupt again, mythfilldatabase wont run, saying
"Incorrect key file for table 'videosource'; try to repair it" I've run
optimize_db.pl, I'malmost ready to get out a big hammer!

the screen went black last night as I was responding, I think I will
rebuild from scratch, new database and all.
