Hello,
Can you clarify what is the product you are trying to upload new software to? it says here a KVM switch, uploading new software into such device is pretty uncommon, can you give me the brand and model?

Thanks.

    1. Download firmware and unzip it with WinZIP/WinRAR or similar software (v8.02e firmwaredated 30/11/2008 will fix the latest auto update issue for The Box Super, but this method applies to any all-in-one ROM loader firmware you wish to load) 

    2. Connect the Starview 3 box to your PC using the correct cable (Serial Null Modem Cable RS232...not any old serial cable). 

    3. Make sure your box is in standby mode. 

    4. Run the firmware exe file then click download (make sure App File Only is selected). 

    5. The progress bar will go from 0% up to 100%, and when this is complete you will get a message saying download complete ! MAKE SURE YOU SEE THE DOWNLOAD COMPLETE POP UP BEFORE YOU DISCONNECT! if you remove it before this pop up appears then it wont work and may kill the box ! 

    6. Once the download is complete a pop up shows, you can then disconnect the box and hook it up to the TV and cable.

    Hey, they are just explanations of the terms used, you said you have the files already?

  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

    Do you have a null modem cable? what cable you got there? also you have a laptop.. are you using USB instead of the old COM - Serial port?

  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

    Hey, the serial / com port is the 9pin, you need to connect the other end into your computer com port which is also 9 pin, lpt / printer port might also work, so in the program select LPT and see if that works, if its not connected to the printer port LPT I don't know what its connected to.





  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

    the last port in the picture next to the com port is VIDEO OUT - VGA OUT so that won't work if your using that one.

  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

    yes the USB - Serial 9pin may work, but it needs a Null modem cable


    like this one


    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Null-Modem-RS232-S...



    Note that the cable above has both connectors as Female, no pins, so it needs to have a com port - male on both ends, if the other end needs to be female you need a diffrent cable.



  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

    do you have a desktop computer you could use to update the software? /with a com port 9 pins

  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

    have you updated the software before? if so how did you do it? 


    You may have to take it to someone who has a desktop computer, or ask your friends with laptops to see if their laptops have the 9pin connector on the back..

  • Ekse Dec 07, 2008

I want to learn how to upload pictures from my Cannon Powershot A95 to my Laptop - Toshiba Satellite M45 S331. Does the laptop have a built in card reader?


Hi

Does your laptop have a slot on the front or side of it that is the same size as your card

if so insert your card into the slot and see if it comes up with a box giving you the option to view

if it does you can view it with windows explorer then highlight everything you want and either drag it into a folder that you open on you laptop or drag them into your pictures that will be in your documents

or you can highlight them all then right click and send to where ever you choose

if windows does not reconize the card reader then go to the website of the laptop www.toshiba.com and go to support/downloads and search for the card reader driver and download it making sure that you get the right one for your make model and operating system

good luck

also the cannon camera propably has software with it so that you can load it onto the laptop and upload the pictures that way

Need codes for starview box just scrambled virgin anyone got the


You are wasting your time asking for codes here or anywhere else for that matter. The codes are being changed that often recently that you just wouldn't be able to keep up.

If you have the starview superusb new firmware is available. If you are in the UK you will need to rescan your box as a lot of frequencies have been changed the firmware you have will still update.
For Ireland the encryption has changed and the ONLY firmware out yet is for the Starview superusb.

andrestapia8,
You can download a limited 30 day trial version from Adobe at: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/ then use the serial number from your box and then register and activate the software if it is the latest version that you have, otherwise you can still run the newest software (Photoshop CS4) for 30 days untils it expires. I'm sorry that I don't have any spainish skills to help communicate this to you any better. Someone may have the disks you can load and then use your own activation sand serial numbers later for the 7.0

Windows Vista CDMA 1X usb modem not working


I faced the same problem i installed it. But got through it. See if this works for you too:

1. You have to install the software you downloaded from the tata site or from the CD you got with the MODEM. Do this without attaching the MODEM to the laptop.

2. Once done, insert the MODEM into the USB drive. The Windows will automatically search drivers for USB MODEM and QualCoMM drivers and install it.

After it shows the success message, click the Tata Indicom Dialer and check. The problem should not appear again.
