Ok so now you've extracted the bin file for your Pansat

Run the Down loader GTRom Loader (the Pansat software)

Click the BIN FILE button, browse and select latest BIN FILE, then click the Open button

browse to the location of the bin file (the bin file you extracted with winrar)

Click the Download button, wait until the Download Completed.

Watch the LED on the receiver, it should reboot itself, wait until receiver displayed ON

Thats it you no longer need the pansat connected to your PC

I'd save a copy of the bin file just in case you need to do this again

That bin file is already extracted. No need to extract it. That file extension is a firmware file and you cannot open it normally. I believe you are trying to run a firmware update. Use the software of the pansat to update the firmware. Look for firmware update option and you will need to browse the bin file for you to run it using the pansat software.

Goto http://www.rarlabs.com/download.htm and make sure you have the current version of winrar .you need to extract the bin file to the hard drive .then goto the file on the harddrive and right click it, select the extract files. it will ask you where you want to extract the files, then you can copy the extracted bin file over to a usb drive so the pansat will pick it up

Extract protected rar files


To extracted protected a protected rar file, you can use Winrar.
Download and install Winrar and then open your rar file using the program. It'll ask you for your password. You must have the password to extract the file. If you don't know it, then you will not be able to extract the file. Once you've got the file open, just choose where you want to extract it to and you're done.
Hope that helps.

I've Downloaded The Latest TV Show Episode,& it's A .RAR File not Like The Others, Which I Had no Problems Watching But I Can't Seem TO Open & Play This File. How Can I WATCH IT?


Rar files are compressed using a program called WinRAR. You can get WinRAR here, but it's not free. They offer a demo version you can download if you just want to use it a few times. An alternative is 7-zip, a free, open-source program that can uncompress RAR format files as well as many other formats. Once you uncompress the file it will be back to its original format.
