Star Sat Sr-3000va

Hi There Y'all...
I Have The Misfortune (or Do I?) To Own A Star Sat Sr-V3000A And I Tried To Flash It But With No Success No Matter What. I Just Can't Find The Proper Software To Flash It. Previously I Used A Card But Not Anymore And You Know Why.
So, Does Anyone Have A Clue As To How To Solve This Problem. In Other Words, Do You Know Where To Pick Upthe Proper Software?
Appreciate Your Help.....
By The Way, I Have The Proper Cable.

Further, which of the following brands of receivers would you recommend:

metabox, Pioneer, Cobra?
