16  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Replacement Sheevaplug power supply: What's the best thing to do? on: June 03, 2010, 08:47:20 AM
Hi All,

I'm very angry about my "out of warranty" dead Sheevaplug power supply, and I'd like to get this thing back up and running for as little money as possible. What's the best route? What's the cheapest device I can buy, only to gut it, and remove the PSU from? Or I've also heard that Global Scale might offer $10 power supply replacements. What's the best path here?

Thanks!

This is awful. It really appears like, over time, the failure rate is getting close to 100%.... If they don't issue RMAs, i think we should all submit complaints with the better business bureau.

Globalscale says they have done a design revision on the GuruPlug and the next shipment in the 2nd week of June includes these modifications. RMA's for everyone.
Great - that does nothing for all of the SHEEVAplug owners that had power supplies die after 3 months of running as an always-on server, which is pretty much the intended use-case.

It really is a bummer to read this thread. My sheevaplug died yesterday because of a bad power supply. Now it looks like the guruplugs may be destined to overheat and fail as well. It's making me think that a small Atom server might be better than these cool little plugs :-(

Mine is now dead too  Angry.

Why are we out of warranty with globalscale??? This sucks. Anyone have any luck w/ RMA #?

Hi there, I'm using my Sheevaplug as a Squeezebox Server / NAS / Tonido box. Works great.  I do wish it were a BIT faster. Actually, iPeng is really quick - it's the SBS web ui that's pretty slow. I'm running a sheevaplug + USB hard drive. I think using a guruplug + esata drive might help performance. Also, the 2ghz plugs come out soon!

But as far as how my actual squeezebox devices perform, they all work just fine! The album / artist info populates pretty quickly.

Actually, after browsing their site, I found the CIRRUS plug. This is EXACTLY what I want. I hope they make it available soon.

Please let us know if you hear anything. I would LOVE a 2ghz plug. Would really speed up my squeezebox server rig a bit. However, it does annoy me a bit that there is no esata option. I was hoping to be able to move from my 1.2ghz USB drive based system to a 2ghz esata based system. I don't need bluetooth, wifi, etc.... just the gigabit ethernet.

THanks for sharing. It's helped me alot although it was really hard for me to identify the link^^!
Sorry I just didn't want it to seem like i was spamming the boards and promoting my blog! But... as requested, I've made it easier to spot!  Roll Eyes

I have a sheevaplug, and I use it for what you do, more or less. I use the Sheevaplug + 500GB external HD. The external HD has a 2GB swap partition, 350GB for a NAS, and the rest is my music partition. Works great! However, I wish I had a little more CPU umph and that disk usage were a bit faster. I think using eSata would improve both (as CPU utilization for USB is higher than for eSata). So... in your shoes, I'd probably get a guruplug.

But for what you want to do, it shouldn't matter much.

I don't understand why "logitech squeezebox" is listed in the first thread as "rejected." Squeezebox Server is a software platform that MANY of us run on top of our sheevaplugs or other embedded devices. There is no individual product called "squeezebox." If you're talking about the hardware devices (radio, boom, transporter, etc), then I'm just confused why they would even be listed.

The thread title says "other plugs" - half of the devices listed are not plugs...

I'm a Tonido user. While 90% of their applications are useless, it's FANTASTIC for browsing files and also creating quick share-points for friends to access. For $20, i like supporting them.

Hi All,

I love my sheevaplug. I've got it running as a squeezebox server, NAS (via AFP & SMB), and Tonido... any ideas? What next? I've got an itch to put something on it, but after months of tweaking, I finally have it in a "perfect" state. Any good ideas for something else to add to this debian based machine? Thanks!
