  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.
  16. Why not get a Paul Hynes SR4T-12 then you can switch between 7,9,12V and see what is best.
  17. If you have an "endpoint" with fiber input like a Sonore opticalrendu or a Lumin X1 for example.
  18. If I am not wrong the Denafrips RJ45 connections are for i2S signals so you cant use that connection going from the Melco to Denafrips as that is not a Network DAC that has to be USB. Only place to put the etherREGEN is before the Melco on the network.
  19. If you use Roon I would connect a hard drive directly to NUC as the files always have to go via Roon core no matter where the file is loacated on the network. So IF it would work to put the harddrive in sMS-200 the file would anyway go to Roon core and then back to sMS-200 and that makes not much sense to me.
  20. You will not violate the isolation when you power the etherREGEN and a modem on the A-side with a JS-2. If you where to power the etherREGEN and a component on the B-side then you would defeat the purpose of the isolation as JS-2 have a shared -0V for the two outputs.
  21. Yes, you dont have any leakage to block between A-ports as you only have fiberoptics on the A-side.
  22. All Paul Hynes PSU are floating designs so if you want to ground the eR you need to do it via the groundscrew when powered with a floating PSU. The grounding affects how the filtering between the A-side ports works. This is from the manual. Please keep in mind that all of the above regarding grounding concerns only the blocking of leakage from one RJ45 jack on the ‘A’ side to another RJ45 jack also on the 'A' side. Regardless of grounding, zero AC leakage from upstream Ethernet devices ever gets past the full active digital isolation and reclocking ADIM™—to
  23. Older HD Plex only had three windings on the transformer so two outputs shared the -0V (12 and 19V). The latest 200W model have four seperate windings on the transformer so all outputs have seperated -0V. I use the latest HD Plex 200W and run the 12V rail to my etherREGEN. As I only use one RJ45 on the A-side (fiber input from router) to my server I have tried both with and without grounded -0V but cant say that I hear any difference.
  24. I would say it is never a absolutely necessary to use the ground screw but it can be usefull if you use two copper connections on the A-side so you make a path to drain away leakage that way. I run fiber to my eR and only use one RJ45 port on the A-side and in this case the ground is not needed but it does not hurt to use it (I have tried both cant say that it made any difference). I have a floating PSU that powers my eR). If you use a powersupply that have the -0V connected to ground (like the supplyed SMPS) then the eR is automaticly grounded as the -0V inside of the
  25. The ground screw on the eR is not for safety it is a functional earthing. This is a type of earthing forms a functional part of an electrical installation. Interference current can be discharged from the filters on the RJ45 A-side for example. I would not use anything that has a high resistans to ground the eR to a ground in a outlet.
