  1. This also happened to mine. It is the potentiometer that is used to change the voltage that is bad. This will affect 19V and the adjustable 19V. It is not that hard to find the right potentiometer and solder of the cable and put a the new one in.
  2. As I wrote I made brackets to mount it to the wall so air can move around it.
  3. I have posted this picture before but it works really well with dual heat sinks and I have it mounted to the wall with two brackets in my networkcabinet. Temperature went from 48C to 38C so I am happy with this modification and the heat sinks are mounted with double-sided heat-conducting tape so it is reversable.
  4. @TwinPeak if you have configured the router and it is up and running you can just use a webbrowser to log in to it. If you use the regular network just use that in the browser to log in. User name and password by default is in the manual.
  5. If you dont get it to work even if the SFP port is part of the switch in your router I would get new SFP modules and cable. Why did you get the BiDi SFP modules from Ubiquiti? Just get their regular UF-MM-1G SFP modules and their multimode cable with dual LC connectors at each end. I have used that combo with my eR and that works.
  6. @TwinPeak log in to your router, select dashboard. Look at the bottom at switch0 and press the button to the right. Select VLAN and see if eth5 (sfp port) is a part of the switch if it is not that check the box besides eth5. This makes the sfp a part of the switch that talks to the other ports.
  7. @bailyhill HD Plex have separated grounds. As long as a psu even with common ground just supply the eR and stuff o the A-side you dont defeat any isolation that the eR does between A-side and B-side.
  8. The eR runs hot not much to do about that, many have some sort of extra heatsink to keep it cooler. I have owned two SR4 driving SOtM equipment and they do get warm to the touch but not as warm as the eR. I have a HD Plex and that have a much bigger powersupply than a SR4 so that will run cooler with the same load. My NUC7i5BNH with Roon ROCK supplied with 12V draws 0,8A when playing music with Roon (no DSP in ROON) so in my system the NUC acctually draws the same power as my eR.
  9. As the modem provides a WAN (wide area network) connection from your ISP you need to have the router with firewall and DHCP first in the chain so you get your LAN (local area network). If you get more noise I cant say that but unless you get it to work first I dont see the point of being concerned about that right now.
  10. I think the router have one blue port (WAN) that you connect to your modem and from one of the yellow ports (LAN) you connect to the eR.
  11. If the ISP modem have no router I think you need to go from modem to routers WAN port then from routers LAN port to eR A-side so you get the DHCP function from the router.
  12. You could mate it with a PSU that could deliver much more amps. The amps stated by Uptone is what it draws at different voltages but you always want some headroom.
  13. If I understand @MrKlutz right it works for a while but then looses connection when he uses the SFP so it does work for a while. I live in Sweden but ordered mine from this company. https://www.fiberoptics4sale.com/collections/fiber-optic-products/products/x3lls1fiscz?lshst=collection
  14. I dont know if it is superior but Corning ClearCurve is very good I use that with my single-mode 1310nm sfp modules.
  15. Paul is not alone anymore (think he has one employee) and SR4T are batch built each month so the wait is not that long right now.
