So did you get it sorted then or are you still missing channels?
HiTech, sorry for not getting back earlier, crisis in the family. Got everything sorted, you were right about the cables.
Thanks a lot!
I'm trying to flash a Eurovox ex1000sl.
Click the download button, push in the plug, "Version 2 detected", press start and it clicks over to 'system restore' and stays there.
The cable is ok because I reloaded lost channels with it. It took a couple of tries, but it worked, so why wont it load the firmware?
I'm not using a usb converter. I've tried at least 50 times, every time it sticks at 'system restore'.
Click start on the Unified Flash Loader, when it says "System reset/restore" unplug the the box from the mains then plug it back in, see if that helps, you may need to do it a few times for it to kick in.
I have sat and done this continuosly for an hour, with the same result everytime. If I had any hair, I would have been pulling it out!!
I dont know then mate, usually when you get that error message doing the above works, I know you say your cable is fine but have you tried another one,
also in your com/ports properties,
1 Check that the "bits per second" is turned up to the max.
2 Press Advanced,
3 make sure Receive and Transmit are turned all the way up.
Hi guys, just purchased a eurovox max v 2008. the guy i purchased it from said it had latest software. However when i go into menu it says software version 2007. I am in the midlands and can only get 25 chanels, what am i doing wrong, also how do i know if my box is a clown and what software to download i,e red blue or black. any help please.
See the Eurovox Guide at the end of HiTeck's post above yours.
Thanks guys, followed the guide easy and all now working, thanks for your advise. wished i had gone for the box with hardrive in now.
Also have ordered a usb to serial adapter for £2.70 from deal extreme, ideal for newer computers with no serial port.
hi all..... ive got a eurovox ex5000 pvr 2 days ago and all i can get is 50 channels most of them are discoverys and some say no audio/no video any ideas im in runcorn cheshire ? p.s cant get bbc1,2 itv 1, 2 etc all the freeview channels either.
Have you flashed the box with the firmware V1.1a, if you have then do a Factory Default and a full powerscan on 6952.
thanx malci i done what u said and now ive got 271 channels and 38 radio channels !
thanx mate much appreciated
Glad your sorted, no problem - Good Luck.
did u manage to get the software for the silver box
Hi I just recieved my new eurovox 500 pvr today, i did a full scan on it, and it went through 0/770 i could see the level and quality was good as it progressed through the scan but when it finished i didn't have any channels. am i missing something?
Yeah your channels LOL.
Where abouts are you and who is your service provider previous to virgin media.
i walked into that one im in ireland Drogheda to be exact. nthell.
Do you have the latest Firmware on your box as most come with free to air?

All the scanning instructions are there, if you follow it carefully and your feed is live with no CC problems it should work out fine, any problems come back.
ok i'm gonna try it on a different symol rate as i was trying it on 6.952, its going through the scan from 0/700 again which should take about 15 minutes. it doesn't look like its doing anything different to the last time. if the box itself turns on with 4 0's on the display and not ---- does this mean it's been flashed. my previous eurovox 2008 box i had to flash it myself.
