Which seems to indicate that it might be possible to get a replacement power supply that
would handle 240V and enable me to avoid the need for a converter in the future,
assuming that the damage did stop at the power supply.
Anyone else tried replacing the power supply in a Kurobox and/or know of a source for
these other than Unifive, where I might be able to just buy one? Otherwise is there any
interest for putting together a group buy, or something like that?
