Got myself a 400s and need help or pionted in the right direction. Can i put an image that i am familiar with(Gemini) on the box and what is the procedure for doing it. Think I may have bitten off more than I can chew with my limited experience but Im a trier Lol. Can I flash it the same way as my dreambox. Im not worried aboutthe image supporting 2 tuners for now just one that will look familiar when i switch on. Can I ftp the image or do i need the usb method for the initial flash. Thanks in advance.

If you want your box to stay alive, then it would be better not to change the firmware with a different one from another make. This can kill it !!!
In the meantime enjoy your new box and if you must make changes, then search the forum for any reliable information.

@HB13DISH: there are also Gemini images for Relook receivers (apologies if you already knew this). Albeit unofficial ones.

@Tom: I don't have a Relook but if there's a Gemini image for the Relook 400s e.g. UNOFFICIAL.Gemini-4.1.RELOOK.400S_25-10-2007, that you like/ know, then let us know how you get on as the Relook section is a little quiet :) (although I read that 4.2 is better than 4.1).

Update. have just flashed the above image onto the 400s. Reported it was sucesful. Rebooted and the Gemini Logo appeared with a message "Loading Enigma" also on screen. The Language options screen appears just the same as the dreambox but it seems to lock up at this stage.

Thanks mhku for the information.
The original poster sounded like he was going to try a Gemini image that he is familiar with and since he has a 500S then I was concerned that he might try THAT instead of looking for one that is suitable for Relook 400S.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I now have it working just like I wanted it to. I have installed "usb_all_ipbox4xx_enigma1_20080403" image on my Relook 400s and it is superp(at the minute). It is from AB-COM who make The AB IPBOX range of receivers. The functionality is great, image comes with channels already installed from loads of satellites and Bouquts already setup for Music, Sport, Kids, News etc. The only negative thing so far is the Sat Scan takes ages. Regarding the Relook 400s, well I think it must have a better tuner than my DB500 as it has pulled in a lot more channels. A/V quality is a big improvement also. Glad I bought it.
