Ok I have been vigorously testing this new firmware for the OpenBox S9 - S10 - S11 - S12. Yes I know the microHD has been released, I even have one ordered. For those though that will still be using their OpenBox or cannot afford to buy the microHD right now....... Anyway I don't have my new toy yet so I continue to experiment with what I have. I have several FTA receivers, but only have one right now that will do S2. That would be my S10, and the S9 my friend has. Also for those of you that are already thinking what? this works on all of these-- yes it does. The S9 has component out in addition to HDMI. The S10, S11, and S12 are the same thing with a different number on the outside case. Only difference is the S11 and S12 come in SCART versions, but still the same under the hood. Now ya know. Anyway I have tried a lot with this firmware: motor, different channel types, Mpeg2, Mpeg4, S2 signals, Ku, C-band, etc. Like I said all but the PVR functions. I know several of you like the August 2011 firmware, but in the last few days I put that back in again. Went to the Ion mux on 103 locked up in seconds. Cleared went to ABC HD on 99 the PR mux locked up. The one I used for a long time was 07-14-11, not many lock-ups which was what I tried to avoid the most, but lip sync issues, and the blind scan would miss a lot. Crazy but would load 10-11-11 firmware(best blind scan for this model hands down until now), do a blind scan and then save the list and then re-load 7-14-11 to watch. The next section I copied and pasted from what I wrote in the download section. So yes somebody else try this put is through tests and let me know. Like I said above I have modified it to work in North America. Here is the link to the the download section where this is at here at SatelliteGuys: OpenBox S9 - S12 06182012-America - Downloads - SatelliteGuys - America's Satellite & Home Theater Technology Information Source! Ok I think I have typed enough, lets here the comments. BTW: I know we all joke, myself included about the s9, s12, s57, s667, etc. That is about the way it is, they just take same guts and put different label on outside of box....anyway this will not work on S16 which btw was the last S-Series, now they have went to the X series.. This version was released on 06-18-2012. .
