I imagine you will have to obtain a small loader app.

Normally you run this on the PC with the cable connected but the receiver disconnected from the mains.

Then you switch on the STB when instructed and the fimware flashing process commences.

MAKE SURE you have the correct firmware, and that you read the loader instructions properly before you get started, or you may toast your new toy.

Have you set the com port to COM1 in the loader software and made sure that your computer is not trying to use COM1 for something else ?

You generally start with the power off and apply it when prompted to do so by the software.
