Hello to all!, i am new to the DBox2 & new to this great forum! I have had a Eurovox for a while & decided to buy a Dbox to play with.... I have read the guides & am a little stuck & confused. Its a Nokia 2xI, pre installed with Sportster Pro. It scanned when i first got it, but some channels where missing so i rescanned with fast scan off. I came back to box to find the menu had gone a funny greenish color/dodgy graphics & no channels found. I still get writing in LCD & it boots up but menu isn't right. I came to the conclusion the image file is corrupt & need to reflash. I have installed a Realtec Network card in my PC & bought a crossover cable & null modem cable. I have disabled Firewalls, removed all Norton software, disabled cable modem. The guides i read tell me to view the I.P address of the box & make a note of it or 1 even said its not needed with IFA? My DBox I.P address had been wiped/vanished. I copied the details someone else listed in a thread. Network card manually set to I.P :192.168.0.2 (in card config menu=192.168.100.) Subnet Mask :255.255.255.0 Nothing else Box I.P :192.168.0.24 Subnet Mask :255.255.255.0 Broadcast :192.168.0.255 DNS :192.168.254.2 I have tried flashing with IFA with Null cable.......it attemps to flash but after waiting a while it says giving up... I notice in the com log it seems to be attempting to reach 192.168.1.202 as my I.P??? Should i change I.P of Dbox to that? Should the DBox I.P be something else...has Sportster got a specific I.P? I'm getting nowhere fast & would really appreciate some help. I really want to do this myself!...I'm not giving up yet.
