@whaka - interesting to hear you’ve had Deneb issues. Did grounding the Deneb solve the problem?

it's the amiga itself who need to be connected to earth.
as long i can't do that, i only use devices powered by the deneb.

I've just double-checked the PSU I have set up here and it does indeed connect the shield to mains earth. But there are some that don't as well, and some countries where grounding is optional, so it really shouldn't be a requirement.

amiga 2000/3000/4000 really officially need earthing if you don't want to face those kind of (i admit, not so frequent) leaking current issue.

and in my case, i have my deneb, and a RR on x-surf in 2 3000.
but i agree, in most case it's not a real problem to work without.

commodre really strongly recommended to use earthing.
they don't put it by pleasure or only to be compliant with some countries.

Thanks for the reply... that's what I needed to know. I have an A2000 with RR & X-Surf also. Did you run a ground wire over to the X-Surf or RR from the chassis? If so, where did you connect to either board? Thanks.

no, i didn't get the wire with the x-surf version.
and nothing about this is mentionned in the documentation.
it's probably not needed because earthing is made thru the amiga pcb.
but of course, your amiga need to be connected on a earthed outlet.

for the moment, as my amiga are not connected to earth, i didn't tried external powered devices with the RR, and now i'm really too afraid from what i read here

I really do believe that its a flaw in the design of the device - there are too many case's of this for user error and too many case's for a bad batch I think. A shame becasue other than this its an awesome device.
