thanks, sorted it now. for some reason it wouldnt work last night but did this morning. CHEERS!!
Fekker is the man
found a site selling the cable for about £3
I am allowed to type cabling4less.co.uk ?
look in the data transfer section 9 pin female to female should be 4th one down
I've gone and got the cable and downloaded the loader. The is a rar file with it that is supposed to be the bin file but when I click to extract it it seems to be empty. Am I doing something wrong. Could someone please PM me the bin file.
Don't think you can PM a file - you need to go the link that fekker set up on rapidshare - keep an eye on the time til next download and refresh site at that point to pick up bin file. any probs let me know
thanks I'm not sure what you mean about the time but I'll have a look
When you click on http://rapidshare.com/files/13529350/Starview_Update.rar
you click on free download (column 2) and then the screen will show You have requested http://rapidshare.com/files/13529350/Starview_Update.rar (459 KB).
You have reached the download-limit for free-users. Want to download more?

the key part is the (or wait 52 minutes)
You have to re-visit and refresh this page until the minutes is at 1 and on ther next refresh you will be allowed to download the file. If you are lucky the wait will not be too long. It is effectively a queing system to get the file for free .
I think I get it now. So all I have been downkoading is the loader.
I have done what you said but at no point am I getting a message telling me that I have reached the download limit, It just says no premium user then a download code and Special-offer extended until 31.1.2007
If you are getting bored no worries.
According to Fekker's notes the link has both the loader called GTRom v4.00.exe and the update file which is called STAR VIEW_26012007_257eE_api.bin after linking PC & Dbox with the cable that you can see on this weblink http://www.cabling4less.co.uk/Data_Cables.php (4th picture down) you double click the icon for the loader file you have copied and saved to PC. This will then open up an application that asks for the bin file. You then click download and within 2 mins your box is updated, you disconnect the cable and re-connect to NTL cable and all channels are back !!
I would just like to than Fekker. I read your simple instructions and managed to upgrade my box on the 1st attempt. It isn't the fact that your not explaining yourself. I think that it maybe the others being mentally lazy. Good work m8 and THANK YOU.
I've connected up the box and downloaded thefile from that site. When I unzip the link I have the loader a word file with instructions and another zip file that is identified as the bin file..However when I try to unzip that file it seems to be empty. I've tried using it without unzipping it but I just get the message the flash update has failed(or very similar). It's starting to get me down a bit as I'm not normally this crap.
If my analogue box could get SKY sports extra I'd give up.
This is how I did it
1.Downloaded file to desktop
2.Opened file using WinRAR
3.Copied the bin file starveiw_260... to desktop
4.Double clicked on GTRom v4.00.exe file
5.Click the bin file button on GTRom
6.Find the Bin File on desktop & click on it
I needed to download WinRAR as well as update file that is on Fekkers links. I got it from rapidshare for free on an elavuation copy.
Hope this helps
