    Hi Black Hole, Well ... as a matter of fact I have already ordered a replacement a few days ago which is going to be a Xtrend ET10000, but I figured I could still try to get that one back ! It is not uninteresting to try to fix it, quite a nice challenge in fact ;). Not having schematics and...

    Hi, Thanks all for your help so far. I am still trying to get my HUMAX to talk somehow … no.. I have not given up yet. Although none of the things below have worked I thought I would let everybody know what I have done so far. It may help someone or give someone some bright ideas. JTAG. I...

    Thanks for the command lines above, what I used seems to be very similar, the version of gzip I used is different though. I tried tonight to put the loader in and unfortunately I am not getting anything either. I tried the following without success, the front panel display backlight is ON but I...

The version of humidify I used is 1.0.2, extract from the readme : "HDF Tool...

    You are absolutely right, that will teach me a lesson ! At least I hope at will at some point understand what I did wrong in the first place. I am not sure at all how I ended up not even having the loader code running...

    OK that's great thank you. I tried flashing it again from power off but with a second USB stick to rule that out and no luck.

    Yes I tried that and it does not seem to do anything. Nothing on the TV or the front panel display. When flashing with the normal procedure, we are supposed to start from standby mode, I can not access that mode. The red Light at the front does not turn ON either. Does the foxsat hdr rely on...

    From what I have read on various forums, the address used to copy into flash is the one contained in the name of the raw file. Given that the name of the raw file was correct, I believe the kernel should have been loaded in the right place. One thing I have not paid too much attention to is the...

    FOXSAT-HDR locked up

    Hi, I tried flashing a foxsat HDR with a custom kernel that I had built and I am now left with a bricked box ! I started off building the kernel that I downloaded from the HUMAX website to which I added the support for printk. I then compressed it into a file named "1.hdfbin-1-100000.raw" and...
