Sounds like you have put the wrong software on the box mate!!

if you have a clone you must use the Clone Safe software!

Cheers,

13 Slot is a genuine original starview.

Put version 4 in your box and not 257

try flashing the box with older version of the firmware, failing that check the caps on the psu, you'll have to open

the box to do this!!

the cap you should look for is on the right psu board, it's c11 cap, if it's got a bulge on top of it then you need to

replace it, if you see a cap which looks deformed just replace it!!

did you try putting older version of the firmware on it first??
