I have a Coship 2300b in North America using the NTSC system.
I load the Astrovox 2500 FTA bin on it.
It loads no problem along with the key bin and channel list
It has PAL/NTSC conversion and goes into NTSC no problem
The problem is I only get the preview channels and the rest are scrambled and the keys have been updated
Does anyone know how to open up the bin, I know a few lines of code have to changed but this is beyond me
Thanks

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

I am not familiar with your stb but it seems to me if you are loading the 2500 Free To Air then you are correct that is all you will get FTA previews.

I understand that you are not familiar with the 2300b but as you know the purpose of a key bin is to let you put in the latest keys so you can open up the channels.
The FTA in the Astrovox FTA is the receiver name and does not nessesary mean that you will only get FTA stations

The firmware may not be rigged at all, or rigged for euro providers.
You would need to know how to fix the crc of the file after editing.
Usually it's just a matter of replacing the euro N2 keys with dishnetwork.
You must fix the crc or the receiver will end up dead.

Now it can be done as I was using a modified Topsat 5000 bin here in N.America and the channels were open
The Topsat 5000 FTA is the same as the Astrovox 2500 and the same as the Coship 2300b. They are all in the same family.
The Topsat 5000 bin no longer works as we went over to Nag 2

Stannie, I have not been here in a while, I also see you on al7, I think I can tell you how to fix the 2300B. It is just a matter of placeing the keys properly.

I useally add a current channel list and upgrade the boot file. I have never had to worry about any crc.The crc only needs to be fixed if you add or remove code, beleive me I have done this many times.
