psats said:im in uk north west i need the upgrade to get the freeveiw card authorised im only getting the free chnls ( what chnls are on 11778v )
the helpline says the box needs the new software for them to enable the card the ver on m8s is 2.8b the new ver is 3.1a.5??iceman said:11778V is the default transponder & carries the EPG & upgrade info.
You cannot upgrade firmware if this freq is not received.
But in your case you shouldnt have any problem getting the Freewiev channels if your card is matched to the box & authorised.
i am turnig off at mains then holding backup while i turn back on and holding till i get the4 lights i am not getting any message i leave til it stops then i turn it back on and its still the same ver of software???rolfw said:Keep trying Psats, how long is the update taking and are you getting the onscreen message?
