Dipr Is A Slam Dunk... Sort Of

For those of you who come to my site, and might not know me personally, I'm going to tell you a little about me. Rest assured it's nothing, too personal or crazy. One of my hobbies, if you can call it that, is volunteering in my community. I've been serving my community for over 15 years now, and currently I'm sitting as Vice President of the Hastings Community Association. I really take great pride in all the accomplishments me and my fellow volunteers have achieved. So why am I telling everyone this? Well, for starters I haven't gotten around to putting up a profile page. More importantly, considering the timeline, I'm hoping to help the inventor of the next product achieve the necessary funding to get his invention produced. I'm sure someone who might happen onto my blog, might be able to assist this individual. If you might be interested in helping this inventor check out this link with more information about donating. 

So what exactly is this invention, well it's called the Dipr

and it's used to do this

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Project: Netgear GS116

Truth be told, this repair was done quite some time ago and is actually part of my structured media home wiring project, which is still ongoing. This Netgear Prosafe 16 Port Gigabit Switch was part of a Craigslist lot I purchased, containing a bunch of computer equipment.  Seeing as I had no need for this switch, at the time, it just sat in my office collecting dust. Once I started my structured media home wiring project I realized the 16 port Netgear could be quite useful, but after a few unsuccessful attempts at utilizing it I realized it was DOA. Here's the situation, when this switch is plugged in, an LED will signify the unit is on and working, however whenever an Ethernet cable is inserted into any of the available jacks, there is no LED activity or connectivity. I took to the world wide web and came across a few similar situations all of which indicated that my unit probably had a bad capacitor. To verify if this was indeed the culprit behind my non functioning switch I woul
