I feel your pain Avenger. This receiver should not be that complicated.
jibaro, Had avenger been provided a driver by his Chinese supplier and installed an .udf file this wouldn't be a thread.
The issue is not with how a file is loaded, it is simply what file is being loaded. Loading an .abs file will not correct a corrupted user database. A corrupt user database file will loop a receiver if it is loaded via USB, satellite or TTL serial port. Going back to post #2 of this thread it has been mentioned to install an .udf file.
Avenger's complication is with the PC not recognizing the conversion cable. The original challenge appears to be with not installing a driver for the conversion cable to be recognized by his computer. Once the conversion device was recognized, the incorrect file was loaded to remedy the corrupted user database.
Once a driver is installed on his PC and the current .udf file is loaded, he will be back in business and this thread can rest!
