Right, tried this, seem's when I hit reload setting's ( this might take a few mins ) It say's command ready, nothing happens, so I waited bout 5 min's, then decided to hit reboot to see if anything happen's. Now all I have is a flashing Darkstar logo.Also cannot connect to ip now. Suppose I may reflash, any advice ?
Ok, I was able to send my old list back to dreambox with the same method, so what am I missing? Only difference I can see, is I've got an extra box unticked ( picon's ). I've a dm 500s, set to Enigma1.
Just had a look in expert setting's, should I have auto bouquet change enabled ?
