The stb has been patched and running fine for 8 months, then after a reboot (power off then on) the stb now starts up with the language selection screen (i.e. the same screen you get following a factory reset) and it is frozen on this screen. I have returned it to my suppplier today but he reckons Technomate will say the warranty is null and void as the stb has patched and not official f/w loaded. So I'm thinking of getting it back from the suppliers before they ship it back to Technomate and possibly restoring the f/w maybe using the Technomate Loader and a null modem cable?
Can anyone advise which loader to use and procedure and has anyone else had this problem and managed to cure it?
