    Has this happened with you guys' ATVs too? My power cord was near-impossible to plug in to the rear of the ATV, and required a lot of jamming until it finally popped in. Now, it looks like there are some scratches on the 3 power prongs on the back of the unit.

    Is my unit defective, or should I not worry about this? I've heard people complain about Time Capsule's power cord in a similar way before.

    The ATV's cord is a real pain to plug in and out. After installing Boxee several times, which requires powering down the unit, mine has gotten a bit easier to plug in.

    yup the power cord is a bitch to plug and unplug. hook it up to a surge protector with a switch.
