    For "The Box" only:

    You will need a null modem cable DB9F to DB9F.

    Null modem info here

    http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=L71BT&DOY=2m6

    If your pc does not have a serial port you will need a USB to serial port adapter to use in conjunction with the null modem cable.

    USB Adapter info here

    These two cable links are only for reference as they can be purchased alot cheaper on fleabay.

    All firmware/loader can be found in the link at the end of my post marked Eamos FTA Library.

    You will need the GTromloader V4, (Starview Software Uploader), found in the Starview software folder of the link.

    You will need version 4.50 for Ireland or version 4.51 for the UK firmware found in "The Box" firmware folder. There are later versions but I find these quite stable.

    And please download the Starview PDF guide,(similar instructions as to "The Box" guide), this will give you step by step instructions on how to do everything.This can be found in the Starview Documentation folder in the link.

    On another note why fix something that isnt broken :)
