Hi folks - this is my first post on this forum, so hello all.

I recently got hold of an FTA-101 digital satellite receiver (which i've read in a few paces are crap). Despite that it was working ok up until a few weeks back. At present it's displays all the freeview channels without issue, however if i try to view say "Sky Sports" it locks up, all i can do is cycle the power on the box.

All the channels used to work perfectly ok - i've reset to factory settings, rescanned for channels (all of which are found) but the same problem occurs. I've been advised that i need to update the software on teh unit which i've tried to do. I got the following:

- Null Modem cable (9pin, female both ends)
- FTA 101 Loader v4.00.exe
- FTA 101_051202_101E_api.bin

I've connected my PC to the receiver, but it doesn't seem to establish a link, thus the update file will not transfer. Does anyone know of any other method of updating this box? I'd be eternally greatful if anyone can provide any guidance or advice.

Apologies if this is all details elsewhere on this forum, i did a search for FTA 101 but found nothing. Thanks folks.
