Software update... searching for host

In the last 2 days my freeview recorder box keeps freezing up and comes with the message "software update through pc/uart" and at the bottom "connecting to host" and loader version 1.00. I have done the usual first time install but it doesn't seem to have worked. Thanks

SOURCE: Verizon FIOS Motorola 6200-2 HD box remote freezes

i'm a verizon employee currently working at a customer's house. just swapped out 3rd 6200 stb, the channels will seemingly change on their own(scrolling) after pressing the remote just a few times. the root of the problem is that the remote is not responding to the stb in the first place properly. all i can figure is that there is some type of ir interference. i've placed the remote 1" from the stb and the same problem exists. it's not the box and the remote is brand new, tried 3 remotes as well. there is something going on in the atmosphere around the box - in or outside the custmer's house. they were on vacation and when they came back this is the trouble they were having. i don't have an answer, just some type of possibilities. there is a power transformer outside on a pole approx. 100' from the house and we had bad storm related issues in the past week. i know it's a stretch, but you never know. could be surround sound/ stereo equipment generating some kind of field??????????? good luck.

So you think I'm gonna answer my own question then tell you how I did it, so that you can then CHARGE someone else for MY answer?! I don't think so! An excellent 'service' you have here - I DON'T think.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND THE UPDATE OF THE SOFTWARE FOR THE SAGEM DTR6400


Your box is updated Over the Air (OTA). I'm afraid I don't hold out much hope for an update anytime soon, but you can keep an eye out for it here...

http://www.dtg.org.uk/industry/download_schedule.php

Make sure your box is set to receive OTA updates automatically and it needs to remain on stby.

Connecting a freeview box


Your dvd player should be connected to the TV INPUT under norma conditionsl.What kind of recorder are you using? VCR player ?, Is it also a VCR recorder ( one cannot assume because I happened to own a VHS\vcr PLAYER, not player & recorder)Is Your VCR recorder? Then It must be connected to freeview box with universal scart to RCA converter box.You have "" dvd player in av2, vcr av1"" where? TV? freeview box scart connector ?
You will need scart to RCA converter box for sure.

Sagem pvr 6200T UK freeview box, display frozen.


I left the box and went for a walk!!!

About four hours after having freezed an error 09 message came up on the set top display and then everything returned to normal, after an on TV screen message that update had been successful.!?!

No difference in in any operation of the freeview box.

Note to self and other users
DO NOT PRESS OK WHEN ASKED TO UPDATE SET TOP BOX.

Updating the channel tuning does seem to work ok, though I have to vary between where channel 4 can be found - or learn welsh!

Can't tune stations from freeview box to DVDR3380/5


You can only record freeview channels through your box.


Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.
