    Hi guys,
    I know your probably fed up of people saying this but.. I just got myself a starview 2 'the box' I have no clue what to do with it, I scanned for programs but most are coming up bad signal or scrambled on the channel.
    Is there some thing I need to do to set it up? any help you guys could give would be gratefully received, preferably a list on how to set it up from the time I take it out of the box lol :)
    I hope some one can help
    Many thanks for your time.

    When you press Menu then 1570 , do you get into the CAS SYSTEM ?

    If not press MENU , and go down to System Information and let me know what api is installed and we take it from there

    Ok , the reason you cant access the CAS menu is cos you have 2.60 installed
    You will need to update your box with the latest firmware

    Have you got a null modem cable (9pin female to 9pin female)

    To update THE B0X, you will need 3 things first .

    1. A Null Modem Cable (9 pin female to 9 pin female)
    2. GT Rom Loader (Software)
    3. latest .bin file (Firmware)

    Number 1 , either you got it with your SV or you will have to buy it
    Number 2 and 3 can be downloaded below , thanks to Eamo.
    Eamo's SV Library
    http://eko.4shared.com/

    Are you in the UK or Ireland because there is different firmware for "THE B0X"

    Celt must be detained for a while :) You can go to the eko link Celt gave you and download the 4.51 UK version. It is in "The Box" firmware section.

    GTrom V4 can be found in the Starview Software folder.
