    The RS-232 cable hasa straight thru wiring configuration. Someone gave it to me recently and I dont know if he loaded any program and theres no way I can find out. I appreciate your response.

    Now I know why, the guy who sent me that RS 232 cable sent me the wrong one. He sent me a SQUARE edge cable connectors. A friend of mine showed me his original cable, the edges are rounded. Hopr if i GET MY NEW ONE IT WILL WORK. Pansat 2500 cables are pain in the neck.

    Thanks you all guys for the help

    Is the RS 232 a serial cable and not NULL?

    Have you loaded any program on this receiver before?

    Once you have the correct cable, you will be able to load the programs in your Pansat. I would suggest to visit the site i gave the link and register, you will find all the help you need to get your receiver working.

    Good Luck.

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).

Does Uniden sell Satellite Dishes? Several years ago people were able to purchase Satellite Dishes from Radio Shack. This enabled them to get non scrambled television stations from around the world. Does...

What you are referring to is a FTA receiver. These are generally considered to be illegal and people who install them are then charged 4500.00 by direct tv because of the assumption that their signal is being stolen. Uniden no longer sells them for this reason

Udate my satellite receiver echostar dsb-1220 fta

If you hold the power button on the receiver till it turns off. It will reboot by its self. If there are any updates to get this will force them to download. However you might have a card that can't be updated. About 7 years ago they changed the smart cards, so older ones will not download new software. A new card from Dish Network is about $20.
