Way off topic -- I guess that's how it goes.

Postby zebraitis » February 25th, 2013, 5:02 pm

.

Avid readers of this forum know that I have been pestering diligently to resolve the issues that were preventing my enjoyment of XBMC on Linux Xios.

FINALLY... Everything works... I am very satisfied with this as a secondary system. (actually, it's my 3rd - 5th systems. )


So, of course ...

My main server with all my SMB shares blew the caps out of the video card. Eight of them. POP ! (... after 4 years of reliable use.)

So, no video card, no motherboard start-up; no start-up, no server; no server, no MySQL... No DB's... no XBMC.

Luckily, I am a level headed individual.

Hmmm... maybe I'll just wait to see if XFX will honor their lifetime warrenty.

Mght be a bit easier.

Fixed? no.

I have a cunning plan...

XFX has agreed to replace (but not warranty) the replacement. This will take some time.

To expedite the repair, I have a vid card being shipped from Newegg.

Newegg has a 30 day return policy.


Y E S !!!

Phase 1 complete - Installed cheap ($30.00) Dual DVI GPU ... server is back up and running.

(... however, unrelated to this Xios' have started acting up.)

Phase 2 (in process) - RMA approved, awaiting shipment of replacement card.

FINALLY... yes.

XFX almost denied the warrant claim.

They stated in their RMA "do not send anything back with the card. No accessory items", and since the card had multiple bracket (short, long, etc), I did not include ANY bracket with the card when returned.


And then they denied my warranty claim, because I did not have a bracket.

As you can imagine, after several heated email and calls, they relented.

Lesson earned.

(... and I have still yet to receive the initial rebate from this bastards.)

So: No more XFX cards for me.
