Bad Capacitors Dish VIP211

Just a heads up

With a friend's help I was able to repair
two dead Dish VIP211 R5000HD units

Both units would repeatedly
crash and restart.
It got to the point where they were unable to boot.

So did anyone bother to tune in to
TCM-HD's fuzzed-down presentation
of Lawrence of Arabia 4K?

The cinema 4K release in theaters was outstanding.

Great posts friends.


TCM-HD is a failure that may as well not exist.
