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

    heres a guide of what you need

Starview 4 the box super


If you mean can you use it on the same line then the answer is yes but if you mean will they talk to each other then the answer is no. The starview doesn't talk to anybody that's how you can use it without it being detected.

If you need more info reply to this post.

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.

Post back if you need more help
