Activation of keys on an FTAS receivers


Hi,

Your query > "Instructions on how to install new keys and activate an FTA receiver using a 2GB Cruzer Micro Flash Drive with 3 smarth technology"

Generic responses:
1. depending on your FTA receiver (brand/model/version) (BlackBird, MultiStar, UltraStar, Pansat, Digiwave, Viewsat, Coolsat, Fortec, Ariza, Twinhan... or even clones) you would need to download the appropriate firmware/satellite keys using your PC & Internet connection;
2. links to firmware/satellite keys maybe available from your FTA receiver manufacturer's website or forums such as HashHU FTA
3. in your PC, unzip the downloaded firmware/satellite keys to a temporary folder;

If you are using a stand-alone hardware FTA box:
a. plug in your 2GB Cruzer Micro Flash Drive to one of your PC's USB port;
b. copy/paste the unzipped files in the root directory of the Flash Drive. Verify that you have the .bin or .pmg of whatever your FTA box is using;
c. remove flash drive from PC's USB port and insert into the USB port of the FTA receiver;
d. on the FTA box, using your remote, go to Menu, Settings or Sytem Information, keys, firmware or receiver Upgrade, select USB, select Flash, Save, Activate or Upgrade;
e. wait until the FTA box has uploaded to itself the new firmware/satellite keys;
f. reboot (power on/off).

If you are using PC-based FTA satellite receiver:
i. run your FTA receiver program;
ii. select for Tools/Options/Upgrade or Update;
iii. browse/direct to search in your temporary folder where downloaded files were unzipped;
iv. once found, click OK/Update/Upgrade;
v. in some brand/model/version, there is an auto upgrade/update feature which will download appropriate firmware/satellite keys if you are online.

Hope that the this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Are there new fta files yet? how do i get them?


Depends what FTA box you have and what LNB's you have hooked up. Also depends on what your running.
There's different fixes out for certain boxes and others are still waiting. Now as for getting them there is a various amount of message boards and websites where you can get them with easy to use instructions with the 'loaders'. Again adding the fixes varies box-to-box, as with some you can upload the fix via USB, others have to be serial connected, and others hook direct into the internet via ethernet cabel (i.e. nFusion).

I have an rs232 cable attached to kyrptview cable box via a usb adaptor.. Cant get my pc to see the box.. its a dell pentium 4 on windows xp.. any help pls


I assume the RS232 cable is going to a serial port? I think you should add a USB card to your system. The old async chips used to support RS232 ports are not fast enough to take USB info.

Viewsat platinum lite 4 line, is dead.


Those four lines are usually hardware related.

When you say you tried to download the latest "fix".

What "fix" are you talking about?

If your satellite receiver has an NTSC RF modulated output (RG 59 F connector), you'll need a TV tuner card in your PC to watch it.

If your satellite receiver outputs NTSC composite (unmodulated, RCA cables: yellow, red, white), you can use something like ADSTech DVD Express to connect to your PC using a USB port.

Once you've got your receiver interfaced to your PC or other display, you'll probably need to download the latest programming guides / channel assignments into the reciever using USB or serial cable.

Due to various countries legal restrictions, finding such bin or autoroll files, even for Free to Air satellite programming, is most easily done by word of mouth.

What is the right rs232 cable to connect a Denon 3808CI reciever and a Phillips RFX9600 serial extender


OK LOOKING AT THE SPECS FOR THE EXTENDER YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS, WHEN USING THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS YOU NEED RS232 CODE STRINGS TO CONTROL THE DENON OR ANYOTHER DEVICE THROUGH THIS EXTENDER USING THE RS232 CONNECTIONS.
IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CONNECT AN I/R EMITTER FROM AN MINI JACK I/R CONTROL PORT ON THE BACK AND THE OTHER END TO THE I/R WINDOW ON THE DENON
