I bought a Prosat 5000 (Force Clone) some time ago and it has been working fine. But yesterday I downloaded the latest operating system from "Thor " and after that was done I got a message that the "clock was updating and I should wait".
I can not get rid of that message its frozen/stuck, I tried to disconnect several times but I get the same message.
Any idea what I can try exept sending it to a repair shop?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The message normally stays on the screen for about ten seconds or so if there is no signal for the update.

In the main menu there is a setting for clock updates along with other initial receiver parameters.

Thanks for information, but my problem is that it stays on all the time, I think that the latest software update (ver.49) is the reason.
Is it possible to get hold of an earlier ver. of the software to load it into the receiver via my PC?

You will need to ensure what you do find on the net is suitable for the receiver - may clones have different base function and a software from another brand can in the worst case cause complete failure.

Force receivers do have download by satellite on Hotbird and Thor 1W.

Does your dealer still have Prosat units in stock, it would be worth asking for a replacement receiver first.

This thread is SEVEN years old. Im sure you can find an online retailer by using Mr Google.

Thread closed - lets let it slip back into obscurity :D
