    As you have indicated you still have API version 2.60e. You need to do as Celt has said and flash version 4.51 to the box.

    You wont be able to turn the EMU key ON with 2.60 installed , and you need to flash the b0x with 4.51 for the UK , Are you sure its a NULL MODEM CABLE you bought as they both look identical

    it's definately a null modem cable it's the 1 from maplin and so is the serial to usb connector. still cant get the 4.51 firmware downloaded to the box the percentage bar just doesn't move at all so cant flash the box
