How to flash the receiver ?

Basically, all the satellites are equipped with Freeview broadcasting so-called FTA-channels, which can be viewed without cards and monthly fees.Receivers such (open) channels are much cheaper than those receivers (have paid scrambled channels) that broadcast in different encodings and demand from the consumer purchases the relevant cards or making a monthly fee.

Thus, the main solution to vopross how to flash the receiver becomes emulator encodings.This, properly chosen program allows by simulating (emulating) cards, to maintain a certain channel code.In many receivers mounted device emulators that support multiple encodings.To view the table of encodings that support those or other receivers can be on the "LEM PLUS | Firmware for receivers" page.

Methods firmware receiver

Before describing how to flash the satellite receiver, or how to conduct operations with the conditional access module, smart cards, let's clarify the following points that affect the result:

  • Basically, the new program for remaking howthemselves linings are marketed on the basis of "AS IS" ( "as is").This means that only you are responsible for the effectiveness of the use of selected programs.
  • process of connecting the satellite receiver to the computer should be implemented only with the power off both devices via a null modem cable.
  • conduct software download is necessary only for the receiver, whose make and model is right for him.
  • Ask the pros and cons of a particular firmware.The forums on the Internet are often discussed the incident when, after installation of new software, there is a loss of certain features or functions characteristic of the previous version of the software.

Consider the process of the receiver firmware on the example of Tricolor TV DRE-5000.This analogy is applicable to virtually all receivers.For the firmware will be needed:

  • receiver DRE-5000;
  • computer;
  • cable category null-modem;
  • flasher program;
  • you selected firmware (the latest release).

sewn through the RS-232 port (COM port).To do this, we use a null modem cable.Under the computer is not equipped with an RS-232 connector, you will need to purchase a USB adapter cable to the COM port.We connect the receiver to the USB port of your PC or laptop.On the manufacturer's website we find the necessary program flasher and swing it.Then flasher DRE Burner unpack and set up the computer (laptop).

Then, turning off the power of devices (the receiver and the computer), spend their connection by means of a null modem cable.One port (connector) RS-232 is located on the back panel of the computer system unit, and the other - the back of the receiver.

After connecting the equipment, proceed to launch on the computer pre-installed software for firmware DRE Burner.In the window that appears, specify the path flasher: click "Open File" and show the place where it is stored on disk, click "Upload" and turn on the receiver.Thereafter prishivka it will be made automatically.During the process can be observed through the window proshivalschika or receiver indicator.The appearance of the inscription "Completed" will mark the end of the process the satellite receiver firmware.

Tip: Never turn off the receiver's power in the flash period.Such an action would entail the failure of the receiver!The flash is essentially simple.Cope with it any hope.Do not be afraid of this process, because now you know how to flash the receiver.Try and you must succeed.
