I have been on holiday and come back today and decided to watch a little telly. Upon booting my box its stuck on the loading penguin page and wont go any further. I have tried reflashing it with the last firmware 6 times and still nothing just sticks on the penguin page.

Any ideas anyone or is it broke :-(

The edge.
can you get into miniroot to reflash?

does it come up 'checking key' in the display after about 90 seconds?

hi digidude i can get into the miniroot. i get the penguin pic that seem really clear which i presume is the bootrom and then you the the pixelated penguin which i am presuming is the image?? thats where its sticking. After 10 power offs and ups at the mains it has finally come back up again. but atfer restarting the box from the menu, its sitting there again. Could it be faulty memory on the box. Btw i do have an internal sata hard drive in it could this have anything to do with it??

Ive read previously the changing the satellite XML file cures problems such as this

worth a try if possible :)
