    Well, I was SO excited that the ps arrived so fast (helps that the co listed above is bay area)
    put it in, doesn't work. ouch. Fan spins up, but HD's don't fire, power light doesn't come on.

    I was worried, had something else happened, etc., so I put the OLD power supply in, and everything booted up fine, but of course after boot up it threw me the "temperature error" again.

    put the new one in, again, no power light, no hard drives spin, just fan.

    So, I guess this one is BAD? I'm contacting them now to see if they can send another one. LOOKS exactly like the current one, same company, motherboard, etc., me thinks they have simply harvested them or something from old H10-250's.

    Would have been REALLY nice if it worked out of the gates though.

    Well, one more update. The ebay company I linked to above shipped a second PS overnight (which was nice) and I got it today, plugged it all in and it works great! HDTIVO back to life, (I need to get a decade out of my tivo hardware!!!)

    So, all it seems pretty good. 45$ shipped for what appears to be an original H10-250 PS works for me, I'm ALMOST considering buying another just to have as a backup.
