:-sball don't know where my prev reply went but??
Ok this might help get you started..the 8776 is jtagable,via 'cn16'. pinout is " 1,3,5,7,9,11 are ground,
pin 2 is trst,pin 6 is tdo, pin 8 is tdi, pin 10 is tck, and pin 12 is tms. the boot select is a headder just behind
the screw at the center of the board . jumping an inner pin to the pin closest to r106 will boot from the dcu.
the pin at the other end of the headder is 'esel'. there is a master reset 'button' located rear of the system
cpu (sw6).
this ird is a 2 tsop unit so i'm guessing that it is similar to a 301-13. if you are using jkeys you may have to use the
version for the 301 .
in either case, you would have to edit 'jkeys.def ' file to specify 39vf160 (check this) flash chips,and 24c64 eeprom.
I havn't tried new bins yet so don't know what works. this ird may be more like a 2700,4900,drd420
my unit is cofigured for 'jedi'tvb ( asian) but does have some 'fta' features. don't know if the aussi system
has any fta features.
i will see if i can add some pix to help(abs8776.zip)
hope this is useful to you (or anyone) boxnut

Does anyone have any info on the recovery menu password for this decoder?
Hi, saw this somewhere...

abs-8776 secret menu
turn the box off at the power point & back on.
when the green lettering " DIGITAL SATELLITE RECEIVER LOADER v3"
appears immediately press down,up the timing on this is important it only works when nothing but
" DIGITAL SATELLITE RECEIVER LOADER v3" is displayed.
The word "UP" will appear in blue lettering at bottom left hand corner if you did it correctly
now press OK,then UP,UP,DOWN.
This will take you to the RECOVERY MENU.
