Please can anyone out there tell me if they have updated their Satellite Receiver from a Laptop??
I have an old Windows 95 PC that doesn't seem recognise the software download from the Technomate Website... so I was wondering if I could do it from my wife's Laptop via a USB to Serial cable adapter.....

The only problem with this is that the (usb) transfer rate maybe to high for the Sat Receiver....

I would be grateful if anyone could tell me if they have made a successful update (to any receiver) by this method ??.

Thanks in advance John
