    Dream 500c image

    Hi there friends, a friend of mines sent me what we both thought was the latest DW 500c image.
    So I connected the box and used dream-up to flash the box, and it did so 'successfully'.

    But a problem arose when I reconnected the box. The green power light stayed at a constant green state and I was NOT able to use the remote control to even get into the setup of the box.

    Rather than come on here and sound desperate, I tried flashing it with an older image I found on the forum. The imaged 'worked' but because it was an older image, I only got the free channels (before the last fix).

    does anyone have an idea of how i may rectify the issue, please?

    Maybe a clean image??

    Re: Dream 500c image

    Thanks for the swift reply Pal...and a fellow Celt also

    I have Dream-up and flashed the box with a file (I think was called) DW AUfix2.0, but do not quote me on this mate as it was done at home yesterday.

    I have a crossover cable etc and usually FTP the VAR file when it comes out but I thought just flashing the box with the latest image would have did the trick...

    Do I need the other files eg. the magic one you've mentioned mate?

    Alright mate. Once you flash you box with dw 2.1 you will have to add the magic files which can be found in the link. The there is a few way to get them accross. I alwys connect with fxo and ftp the files over.

    Pm sent also

    Nice post but instead of the magic files try this from neorage

    http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/18733...ml#post1590046 no more telnet just ftp to /var/etc and reboot the box and it automagically works.

    From neorage.
