    Technomate once had a well deserved and hard won reputation for superior hardware and build quality but that has in my opinion dropped remarkably over the past few years with their e2 boxes, they are now very tinny with really thin casings. Really brittle plastic and poor cooling fans.

    Dont get me wrong there are still fine machines and at a good price when compared to the likes of the Vu+ models but they just feel cheaply put together to me. I do still use mine almost daily except the nano 2 super as that thing has not only killed it's own cooling fan but the one out of the nano oe too.

    I would have after the second time given up on the box, as it points to cheap components being used. And another accident waiting to happen, after a repair. Perhaps doing a research to see if a common complaint, and asking for a refund. I have a AV amp that as had 2 repairs on HMDI output board, due to cheap capacitors being used. And it was repair free of charge, along with free collect and return.

    IMO, TM are normally very good with their aftersales. As with most others, they have their issues too.

    How old is the receiver?

    Just read this old thread and I see most of the discussion is negative. I've had my nano2super for four years and is used daily for 8 hours each day. I had one issue with the main board three years ago and since then all has been running very smoothly using openvix and openatv images. In my opinion Technomate warrants a positive account.
