My old set top box started to have problems powering up. I got a new one.

If anyone is interested, you can have it. The problem might just be a dead 
capacitor (one is bulging a bit). I don't have enough interest to try to fix 

Its a Hotchip ODT-4000HD - the circuit card inside says ZDT-420HD.

The main chip is Broadcom BCM7035RKPB5 (google for Broadcom BCM7035). There is 
some kind of NEC chip - VR5432 (perhaps MIPS CPU). It has an RS232 port and 
about a 40 pin header connected to some kind of boot flash that could 
probably be used to make it boot differently.

There is a philips TU1216 tuner.

Willing to bring it to CLUG or PSIG. I'm certainly not going to ship it
