Hello there...

I am new to this board, my friend told me about it, it is really cool :cool:

I live in Iraq, Here there is a sattelite receiever that can be connected to the PC to record movies, songs, ...

The receiever name is Sky1 , it is MADE IN KOREA, the provided software in the CD was @Sky VideoLink and when I read the manual, I see that the site for the receiver is www.atsky.fr and now it is [THE COMPANIES WERE MERGED] www.neotion.com

So, I wanted to update my sattelite receiver, when I went to the site, I saw that the box is French but the software [RECORDING SOFTWARE] provided in the site is the same as mine, and the receiver is named Neotion Box ...

So, I downloaded the last firmware update [which opens FREEX TV], and I prepaired the RS-232 cable, and I connected it as the following :

SIDE 1 SIDE 2
2 3
3 2

And when I executed the update program, and pressed Update button, the program did not say anything, and I had readed the manual and did the right thing...

My friend updated his Sky1 with STRONG DOWNLOADER® which is provided at www.strong-technologies.com and he got the software binary file from somewhere [HE DID NOT TELL ME ABOUT IT] and then he updated his box successfully

Please Please, if any one knows something about this, just reply :)

Best Regards

Thank you very much!!!

Welcome to the board

Some receivers use a different type of formware cable for manual upgrade

Can you confirm the receiver you have requires serial cable and not null modem ?

Can't help with the software, but the null modem cable can be obtained from most computer shops.
