I used to have problems with the power supply's until I read an article 
that suggested powering the HDpvr from the  pc power supply.. The last 
year I ran the wall wart's, I went through 3.. That was enough too make 
me find a more permanent  solution. The PC solution has been running for 
about 3 years with no down time.. There is a bit of risk making the 
wire,but if you pay attention to the schematic,you should be fine...

Good Luck, Greg
