Hi Paul

Firstly you do not mention the model of the stb which does not help with getting a response from people unless you are referring to the SF 1008, it is however not a common machine and as you have discovered support appears to be very thin on the ground. There is a German site that supports them but you will have to use google translate to convert to English
