[font=&quot]I tried flashing my DB7000 for the first time with hydra7000_zeus_108_2.img using FLASHWIZARD_PRO_4.5a. Now I think because I didn't flash erase after uploading the patch it’s messed my motor settings up i.e. the above won't move the dish very well or pickup a signal. Or perhaps hydra is buggy? I backed up the original 1.05 image and settings before hand and tried putting it back on but the box but it just crashes every time I go into the motor settings. So I’m not sure what to do now. I put enigma 1.08 on but it still won’t pick up a signal, or move the motor properly. Tried checking motor input power and changing to 80.mA. I’ve tried 5 different images now all duffers, do I keep trying images until one works?[/font]

It seems that many 1.08 images don't drive the motor well, although some users report success.

The 1.07 images seem to have better results.

Why not try Black Tiger 3 V1.07. My favourite, although I don't drive a motor with it.

Also, the SF images (1.08) have driven diseqc motors.

Remember to do a flash erase where indicated by the image-writers.

Thanks fella,

I'll try the 1.07's. I did download sf_img_v108_2_0812.img. But the box booted in cz language so I gave up. I'm looping through the dreambox from my samsung 9500 viaci so Im not sure If there maybe any compatibilty issues with the motor. The motor is cock on though as the samsung scans like a dream. Aah I just love messing with new toys :D

I think the SF images default to cz lang, but can be changed during setup (assuming that you can navigate that far!). T_G uses one AFAIK.

Think there is a general motor problem with 1.08, and don't forget that 1.08.2 is a beta. 1.08 is the last 'official' release.

Had a problem with this image today - ended up reverting back and lucky for me the var folder was on the HDD so everything reverted OK.

Think this is a problem with Zeus image.

It was working through the loopthrough with the original 1.05 image?
My thoughts are that if using loopthrough worked on 1.05, it should work on 1.08?
