I've been waiting for you to "puff in".
Trust me , Swaping PI leads will ONLY take out the tuner in the HR.. Won't even create a wisp of smoke..
He's got a lot more than just the PI power to create noticible smoke..

My Setup as of January 2011

I am still having trouble figuring out what could have caused such a problem that it not only killed the IRD, but also the input on the TV. Maybe an incorrect ground someplace - an electrical outlet without a ground that is wired backwards and wasn't an issue until other equipment was connected to it that did have a proper ground. I suspect that there is still a very serious electrical problem someplace in that house, and it is only a matter of time until it causes some other problem.
Completely agree here.
I have a lot of questions as this just doesn't smell right.
I'd like to know how the wires were ran to the LCDs?
In wall or not?
If in wall are they CL3 rated?
Who ran them?
It was said that the second TV which was mirrored off the first IRD via HDMI in another room. How was that done?
My gut says there is a very, very serious electrial issue somewhere. Either an outlet miswired or a bad ground. Or even worse, if lines were run in wall, some internal wiring may have been damaged when an LCD was mounted. If so, there is a very real risk of fire.

working correctly now does not equate to being correct.
if this has happened, what are the odds a kid will get lifted at some point when they go to touch the dvr/tv.
be safe, get this investigated thoroughly please.
