trying to update software in a Coolsat 8000
I recently purchased coolsat 8000 receiver, It has SW 11170A how do I get it to 2025A. I've ran upgrade 3.01 uploader and downloaded files from here. But I cannot get coolsat 8000 to recognize the upgrade. What is proper sequence? Turn receiver on off at what point? Thanks in advance!

I think it takes a serial cable(straight thru)...Ed
Negative, it needs a null modem cable. The transfer should be started at the PC, then the CS8000 powered on at the back switch.

From memory, connect the USB while the STB is off (back switch off), then switch on the CS; check if the USB is recognized and proceed to the upgrade.
The 8000 doesn't have USB.
