    I have the same problem.. Well I think so. I was loading the latest bin file from Jan 8, the power didn't shut down for about 10 minutes. Manually powered the receiver off and all I have now is ---- on the display and a black screen... my guess is that the box is fried. any suggestions?

Can you do this by a laptop

Posted on Jun 10, 2008


Its simple. Grab your null modem cable from your viewsat cable package. It looks like a basic com cable. Download a program called Viewsat loader. Just google it. Now you have to find the main.pgm file You can find these viewsat files on your local websites. If you need one, try. . Then load the viewsat loader. Choose open file, select the main.pgm file you downloaded. Hit the PC->STB button while your receiver is turned off. Then hit the switch on the back. When you are restored, you may be lucky and just have to load your latest image and presto. If not, then you have to rescan for your channels. Either way, your done.

OK I did my research. Apparently there is a little chip inside the receiver that has burnt. We need to take our receiver the the people who know how to fix them and replace the chip with a new one. It might take time as from what I hear it could be any chip? Hope this helps
