This guide is intended for use with the Eurovox but the equipmentrequired is the same for flashing other boxes. The only differenceswill 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 thejob; as most recent laptops do not have a serial port, you mustpurchase the adaptor.

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

Connect the adaptor to the USB port on the laptop. Connect one end ofthe the Null Modem cable to the Adaptor and the other to the serialport 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 upbefore flashing, although in some instances, the new update will notaffect 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 toupload channel data. Select a name and a location for the file and saveit. It is at this point you will be alerted if the box has connectedwith 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 nextoption to appear , in my case it's prolific serial to com port. Nowselect 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 tothe box. Again, it is indicated on the screen and very easy to do. Onceinitiated, the box will display DNLD message and a progress bar willappear on the laptop screen. Allow to complete fully ! Do not disconnectuntil UPDATE SUCCESSFUL message appears on the screen. This can, insome cases, be 30seconds after 100% has been reached on the progressbar.

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

What connection do I use to connect a sony blue ray disc to on a Yamaha htr 6030 reciever to play music cd's


You said "...on reciever cd out in the audio box..." but it should the reciever IN that you connect to. Also is the BlueRay player capable of playing CD's ? When you press play on the sony remote, do the seconds start counting on the screen ? (ie: is it playing, but no sound is coming out?)

Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

If your TV has HDMI in and digital optical out, run your HDMI cable via HDMI out on box to, HDMI in on TV then, run digital optical ouyt from TV to digital optical in on reciever. Your reciever has video pass through but, not the best option. Video components should run to TV then out to reciever. If you do not have digital optical out on TV, you may be able to use RCA.

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.

Installed surround sound, no picture on tv


I could not get my TV to recognize an S-video signal from my reciever either. I ended up just bypassing the reciever and running the video straight from the cable box to the TV. It might be a better option anyways as some quality is lost if you run it through the reciever.
