This is a bit of a longshot but my mate has a Droidtv MX Android box and a component has blown.
My mate reported that the box locked up as it had overheated. I've removed the board and the component looks like a blown capacitor that had leaked its contents and then dried out. I've cleaned it with some Articlean and the component is just plain silver, no markings on it what so ever.
In the below image [not my pic], look at the area marked in red, to the right is a Geil chip, and to the right of that is the blown silver component with two solder points. The image is for a G-Box which the DroidTv MX is just a clone of but the component looks identical.

I'd happily try to get a replacement component, remove the blown whatever it is, and solder a new one on. I've just no idea what it is and trying to Google for a replacement component when I've no idea what it is, is proving difficult. I've tried posting on the forum which supports these boxes and surprise surprise, no reply.
Has anyone seen a component like this before and knows what it's called please? I can't seem to delete exiting images I've uploaded to my forum account so I can't post a photo. I'll also add that I've got chronic back ache today and I'm whacked up on pain killers so I may have overlooked the delete button!
