    Hi



    I know this is a long shoot, but here it goes.

    For some reason one SMD capacitor seems to have jumped off my board. If anyone happen to have a similar board and equipment to measure
    that part I would be very happy.

    See attached picture marked with red circle.

    Oh dear!
    Did you contact TechnoTrend/CityCom and ask them?
    I don't have a C-1501 myself, but I hope you manage to find the information, source a component, and successfully repair the card. :)

    Thanks @mm1352000!

    I have dropped an email to Technotrend, lets see if they help out.
    This card has served me really well for many years without problems. I rebuilt my htpc and fumbled with it(dropped it from low altitude), but it is really rare that a soldered two joints SMD falls of like this. It seems to be part of a LC-filter for the tuner, so value is actually important:)

    I had a USB TBS 5220 laying around so used that instead. However, it has it own problems and intermittently drops signal. Pulling it and reattaching fixes it, but really nauseating. This is not Mediaportal related as I have the same problem with dvbviewer. I will send an email to TBS regarding this issue. Sigh...
