Publius,

Tried PMing you, regarding the return of the Muse Decoder. Please contact me.

Hello abc_kid,

good to hear from you. I had the EXACT same problem with publius. I sent a broken MUSE decoder to him ( which cost me 50 € btw as I live in Germany ) and he never got back to me !
I messaged him once but he did not reply. He then sent me an e-mail a couple of months later telling me of a trip that he had made to Europe the previous couple of weeks.
But I have never heard back from him ever since.

I am very disappointed, too. This is not how things should be done among laserdisc aficionados and members of this forum / site.

I made an Anime LD deal with Publius once, a couple years ago:
I bought an LD Box for him in Europe,
and he bought the Animeigo KOR Sets for me in the U.S.
It was an absolute perfect deal, and I would say Publius
is a honest guy all through and through.
I also see him posting in a certain LD related Facebook group,
so I'm sure he will read this sooner or later.

Well, I can only tell you about my experience. I bought an 8 inch LD from him once and the deal went perfectly well.
BUt making the effort of sending a broken MUSE decoder to Texas and not hearing back from him is not nice at all.

He visited LDDb again on April 27th (12 days ago) but didn't read my PM from April 10th.

abc_kid mentioned he received a card (by mail) from Publius explaining that he was away from home for now but that he would take care of things when returning.

I'm left wondering what's happening here too; has he contacted either of you in a meaningful way abc_kid or confederate?

He seems to be able to find the time to post on a FB LD group fairly regularly over this period and yet here.... crickets......

Beginning to worry he might be "Doing a Duncan".

No update from him other than a card he mailed to me, with the above explanations. I still don't have my MUSE decoder. I've pretty much given up hope.

He was on LDDb.com 9 days ago but hasn't visited the forum since April.

I'm closing his shop since he can't be contacted.

This is a shame and technically he can be contacted. I personally PMed him on FB to tell him this post was here and he apparently is choosing to ignore it. He did respond to my PM so he is aware, this goes back weeks.

Shame, publius was a small hero to me. Sony Hi Vision decks and the know how to repair them, doing public screenings with them just like the old days. Also his avatar and he was from the same generation of anime fans as me. Hope you get your stuff back. f**k scammers like him.

I hope this gets cleared up in a positive way. Liked his contribution here.
Also a fan of "The Luna Project" ....

We do not need a run of Duncans at the LDDB ..... No way.. No how :cry:

He did contact me after receiving "Shop was closed" notification and I pointed to this topic as the main reason (+ unanswered PMs).

=> PUBLIUS, could you step in and get everything back to normal?

Just an update, he PM'd me and said that repairs were finished and shipped the "player" back (hope he meant decoder!). It's due to arrive this Thursday, I will update this thread then.

UPDATE: The decoder arrived today. Excellent double boxed packaging, and also came with a card from Publius explaining that it was some bad solder joints on the power supply board. I haven't had a chance to hook up and test yet.

As far as I'm concerned, Publius made things right. Communication had been good early on via this site, but then he only seemed available via snail mail. The decoder was sent to him last November and I did say that I was not in a rush to get it fixed and returned.

Another member also sent a decorder to him from overseas, I hope they also get their decoder back and also have a positive story to share.

Glad to hear it, I believe Publius was one of the first people I contacted when this forum started, would have been a shame that one of the few originals would be gone.

Hope he is back on here soon and hope all is well with him.
