    Regardless of jackpot, the odds of winning Powerball is 1 in 292,201,338 per play. The odds of having a jackpot winning ticket do not change based on the jackpot size or number of players. The odds of having the only winning ticket changes based on the number of players - a number that does increase (reducing the chances of a solo win) as the jackpot increases (thanks to human nature - more tickets sold when the jackpot is larger). But Powerball is not a drawing where there is one winner every drawing - the odds of one ticket matching the winning numbers does not change.

    The odds of winning $563M are much less as that feat would require the jackpot to be $563M on the day the prize is won (or a multiple of $563M if more than one ticket matched).

    Sigh ....
    Peter's claim apparently is that it is "very very very unlikely" that "things may have been damaged by the failed capacitors".

    There are three on the power supply board and two on the tuner/main board. The specs are 2200µF, 6.3V, and are 10mm in diameter. Here are some pictures - the failed ones are marked with two blue dots.

    To be clear I have two HR20s that are both owned. Both had the exact same capacitors fail, and only those capacitors.
