Well firstly you do not mention what cable you are using.
Is it a null modem cable a standard RS232 cable usb cable?

Second surely the loader software is on the pc and it is the stb that you cannot get the software to see?

Hello again Topper... been about 6 months since I heard from u last! And again the first to reply!

Ok, I am using a USB-RS232 cable with a "gender changer" to connect from my laptop to the megabox. And yes, the loader software is on the laptop and the loader works seemingly fine. But every time I set up the loader with the software, plug in the stb, and power the stb on and hit "connect" on the loader, the stb just loads up as normal and nothing is shown on the loader. Or I get an error like "cannot open file" or "comport" etc...

It shouldn't make a difference if I use this setup to connect to the stb, should it? Thanks a load Topper.

This is indicative that the cable setup is incorrect and the stb end of the cable is not showing the correct configuration of high and low terminals that indicates to the stb that a download is ready to happen
I do not know your stb but I would bet on it being the cable arrangement that is incorrect. Firstly most systems require a null modem arrangement which has completely different wiring as per the picture below.
Also my experience with gender changers, success was limited.
I would suggest you get hold of an old laptop or pc that has comm ports and try that.

well, I got a cable that looks like the null modem cable I have at home back in Canada but this one is thicker but it fit in the serial com port perfectly. As I set up the loader and followed the procedure again I got nothing. The receiver just isn't connecting with my pc. Is there a possibility that I am using the wrong cable? I just assumed that the cable fit in the comport and the receiver so it must be the right cable. Could there be a difference? Thanks for all your help Topper, you've been great help so far! If I don't get this working again soon, I will have to try again in 4 and a half months when I come back to Dubai. I will keep in touch... this site is great!
