    OTHER Generic Dvb-s2 firmware

    Wow, did I ever learn some things today! To start with, I now understand the snafu, that happened when I first bought this POS receiver! While I do buy stuff from Ebay, it is because we live 100 miles, one way, from the nearest actual town. We are so far out, that it was only a year and a half...

    OTHER Generic Dvb-s2 firmware

    Yep! I was going to get one of these! I had it on the watch list, the next day, I put the money on my card, went to buy it, and the priced had jumped to $75! That was a drag! I do see one again, for the $39.95, if I can figure a way to come up with it, before another price jump, it could happen! ;)

    Thank you very much for the warning, and I am taking it very seriously. And to be honest, unless I am positive I can find something compatible, I will leave things as they currently are. However, would it be cool to ask you a completely off topic question?

    OTHER Generic Dvb-s2 firmware

    Good morning, I am still a bit skittish, about removing the heatsink from the chipset, because I don't know if I can reattach it correctly, since there is no actual lock down. However, I did make a backup, via USB, then transferred it to my laptop. Then I opened it with wordpad, the first thing...

    OTHER Generic Dvb-s2 firmware

    The mass produced cases, make sense, and is one of my main concerns.I figured as much, due to several looking the same, but with different capabilities. The link I posted, was the only one that had the same capabilities, as listed on the one I bought, other than the need for the update. I would...

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by SOC number. However, the AV2018 is the tuner I have. Also, here is a link, to the exact stb (that kinda makes me chuckle) With all of the specs. There is a fairly long number on the motherboard, and a small chip with a few numbers on it. I did not remove...

    Well, at least I have now found a link to the exact same unit, not the seller I was dumb enough to buy from, but the same unit any way. I will try to post the link. I can not post the link, due to an error, that says spam like activity, or inappropriate elements.

    There is no make or model printed anywhere on the receiver. Most of the current sellers, are now listing the same receiver, as unbranded. The splitter, says Support compressed and uncompressed digital audio formats including DTS-HD , Dolby True HD and LPCM7.1 I thought uncompressed, would be...

    OTHER Generic Dvb-s2 firmware

    Okay, I bought it on Ebay, in Oct. The seller no longer sells them, so I can't send a link to them. However, I found another seller, who has the exact same units, except of course, their add says Dolby is optional. Also, this seller is in China, and the sell I ordered from, was supposedly from...

    OTHER Generic Dvb-s2 firmware

    Good morning, I have a generic Dvb-s2 receiver, that may have been misrepresented by the seller. It clearly said in the add, Dolby audio, which is why I bought it. It turns out, to get the Dolby audio, I need a firmware update. I* have no clue of the manufacturer. Can anyone steer me in the...

    OTHER Composite audio issue

    Good morning, and Thank you all for responding. First, contacting the seller, is a wash, so, that would put me in the no customer support group. However, it may be possible, as soon as I can find one of our regular usb cables, maybe I can get a firmware upgrade that way. Fat Air. I am not 100%...

    OTHER Composite audio issue

    Hi Titanium, Thank you fro your response. Yes this happens on all channels, and all satellites. Being a trained electronics tech, I am seriously considering opening it up, to see if there is a connection issue inside. Before I do that, I just want to be sure, that I should have audio, on the RCA...

    OTHER Composite audio issue

    Good morning. I have a generic DVB-S2 receiver. Mostly it works great, but for some reason, I only get audio, through the HDMI cable. To get that, I have to have it set for raw, instead of PCM, and I get no audio through the RCA composite. Video is fine with HDMI, and RCA. Is this a setting...
