This guide is intended for use with the Eurovox but the equipment required is the same for flashing other boxes. The only differences will be with the relevant box firmware and its loader software.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1. Null Modem Cable ( available from here )
2. Serial to USB Adaptor ( available from here

The above adaptor assumes that you want to use a laptop to do the job; as most recent laptops do not have a serial port, you must purchase the adaptor.

The Serial to USB adaptor will come with a drivers disk. So install this before we go any further and follow on screen instructions.

Connect the adaptor to the USB port on the laptop. Connect one end of the the Null Modem cable to the Adaptor and the other to the serial port on the Eurovox.

Provided you have downloaded the correct version, proceed:

The file will have to be extracted. Use winzip or winrar for this procedure ( Very easy )

Ensure the Box is powered on. You can leave connected to the TV if you choose.

If you have your channels set up in Favourites we will back them up before flashing, although in some instances, the new update will not affect stored channels if your firmware is not too dated.

Anyway, go to the file which you extracted and start the application. ( It will be named UFL_MaxV_Kuro V........ ) Your first action will be to upload channel data. Select a name and a location for the file and save it. It is at this point you will be alerted if the box has connected with the PC. If it has not, do the following:

Go to Desktop / Right click" My Computer" / Select Properties / Hardware / Device Manager / Ports & Com Ports. Now select the next option to appear , in my case it's prolific serial to com port. Now select Port settings / Advanced / Change com port to 1,2,3 or 4 / OK / Exit .

Go back to the loader screen and you should now be able to communicate with the box.

Following channel data backup, you must now download the firmware to the box. Again, it is indicated on the screen and very easy to do. Once initiated, the box will display DNLD message and a progress bar will appear on the laptop screen. Allow to complete fully ! Do not disconnect until UPDATE SUCCESSFUL message appears on the screen. This can, in some cases, be 30seconds after 100% has been reached on the progress bar.

Finally, download your channel data and the operation is complete.

Now:
factory reset,
re scan,
go into the menu where you click on the set default key
switch on Emu
exit 3 times
wait for code to update
needs to be done after you have applied the fix,
And if that doesn't work put on Sky or Setanta orParamount+1 for a second, certain channels kickstart the process.

Hope this helps

Hi there, wondering if you can help... starview box cant pick up channels any more... could u update the codes at all please?? many thanks


If your starview WAS working recently, then it will probably be the switch to Nagravision 3 in your area.
It coming to everyone, and when it does all the boxes will be useless.

Lost channels and advise needed


Hi, I dont know how good you are with computers, but you can get a programmer, and do your own card, your other options are getting a new box, like a starview, you would just unplug your box, plug in the starview box, but then you would have to download software for your box, some people sell boxes with software, and when codes change, you can update it yourself, hope you can understand this.

good luck
