Patrick, nice bit of h/brew there.
can you tell me which external power supply you used , my Plug-original- has been running fine and cool (touch wood!); since i got it last year.
it's only used as a server to replace a Qnap TS109 Pro Nas with SqueezeBoxserver on 4gb Sandisk and a W/Digital ext usb drive.
the Sheeva's processor makes short work of SqueezeBoxserver duties.
