Can I use a USB adapter to download software to the receiver if I do not have a serial port on my pc.

Cheers

Neil

Not as far as I know, you normally need some sort of loading program and can't run it on a USB stick.

Apparently some work, some don't. Depends on your PC and the adaptor. May also depend on your STB. Suck it and see. If you get a successful handshake, then try a flash.

At your own risk, of course ;)

Never used one myself.

As far as I can remember, the converter driver emulates a real com port, and uses the standard addressing, IRQ's etc. Your loader thinks it sees a genuine com port (which I suppose it does really...)

For T*P*S and A*B channels, you have to change the AES keys every 10 to 20 mn.

I am also interseted to know how to use USB to serial converter.
Each time I want to upgrade my receiver I have to use the computer of my friend because my laptop doesnt have port com.

I have 1 USB/Serial cable adaptor.
So how to use it.

For info I have a startrack 2005 super.
I was using a null modem cable (RS232) to upgrade it.
