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.

What is an fta lock


FTA means "Free to Air"
It mostly means your unit can't do decoding of encrypted channels, and is locked to FTA.
It may also be if your unit was sold by a specific provider that is is locked to their own channels.

Fortec Star upgrade


Hello Keithclu,
Sorry for the late response.
I'm afraid that there aren't any known upgrades to decode kryptoworks encryption, besides this STB has only 1Meg flash memory and can only be use to receive FTA signals.
