    Default A780 Download fail

    Hi all,

    Been trying to flash box with new firmware for last 3 hours. Can get anywhere between 0% and the max was 66% then "download fail" message. I am using a null modem cable with usb adapter. Have a feeling it's something to do with the cabling?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    It's not really a technical forum if no one replies to your technical questions? Asked the same question on Techwatch and cactikid managed to reply there?

    like pcs the kv 780 are getting past it needing a null modem cable and direct input into a serial/rs232 port to work.
    adding usb adapters brings more issues with drivers and working is not always 100%.
    old pc or laptops might have a serial port to use null modem.
    read the flashing guides as that has included usb adapters.

    another thing worth considering with crappy sd picture on 780 is a hd box that can use hd channels? worth pondering.
