Connect a laptop to the area, because it sounds like a network issue. Go into the networking option and do a factory reset and see if it is still red. If I'm not mistaken the flashing red is a network issue and not a khub issue, the flashing orange is a network/khub issue and solid green is when your good to go.

To setup the kbox, you only need two files put on your thumb drive. The new kbox firmware and the khub activation and that's it.

c&p is perfectablly legal lol with username
don't forget to share,

what is k1plus definately one member asked this question..}

Ans: dah.. its a iks fta reciever

what is difference b.w k1plus and nfusion feature wise..}}

well k1plus is better..
if u look at few things..
it has pvr, + option of standalone ( i mean with these nagra 3 channels u have to use iks) but once nagra 3 is crack, then will allow standalone bin, so u don't have to use iks all the time,
nfusion have lack of usb/pvr, so for hd u have to spend 400-500 ,
also pic quality is better on k1plus,
i know its improved on solaris model but i haven't checked it out..
so vittu nfsuion will get those channels likely but i think it will create them for a demand of pvr model within $ 200 budget..
also it will take some load from nfusion server once people swith to k1plus lol..
it is always good to have competition,


what is best place to buy k1plus/pro}}

check transat electronics,
list of official dealers are listed at
www.kboxteam.com

kbox history.....}}

some more info about the reciever..
reciever was released last year...
it was looked similar to koolsat so there was lots of bashing etc with old nfusion home site... it was known as k1hero, at that time, because box was similar to koolsat some koolsat owner bought khub and someone created a file to convert their koolsat6100 to kbox.. so k1plus did what other companies never did before,
they ask for to return the box to do the upgrade so that no koolsatowner can switch their box.. they had an excellent customer support, had to pay only oneway shipping, box was upgraded to k1plus (software changed)..
now its just k1plus ..
now with k1plus what is different than nfusion, it has option of standalone and iks mode, so they release bin after ecm, so after ecm u can swith to standalone if u want to .. or u can stay with iks.. (but with these nagra 3 channels u have to use iks)
box had lots of problems at begenning with iks , it wasn't stable, but lots few months things changed they have stabled iks now.
now other thing is pvr ,so its built in usb u can record and play to usb/external hard drive..
and pic quality is awesome...

what kind of equipment i need for iks to make it work}

k1plus or pro model
khub
a router, (wireless is always good)

PROdigy and KHUB setup
Okay this guide is meant to address the setup of a KBox PROdigy along with the BLACK khub with the KHub logo on it. This guide is NOT applicable to the OLDER silver KHubs.

1. Connect the KBox to the coax, and power up;
2. Load the UNZIPPED bin 2.01, (or later as they are released), onto your USB;
3. Insert the USB into the port;
4. When the explorer screen appears use the remote arrow buttons to highlight the bin;
5. Press OK
6. When the bin is done loading the KBox will reboot itself;
7. Setup and scan your satellites in the menu installation dish settings menu;
8. Go to menu installation options and change Stand alone to network;
9. Set ALL AU in the same screen to OFF.
10. Plug the ethernet cable into the port on the khub;
11. Plug the KHub DIRECTLY into the KBox serial port, (NO cables needed);
12. Load the UNZIPPED khub.rom file, (found in the khub activation v2.0 in the files forum), onto your USB;
13. Insert the USB into the KBox, highlight the KHUB file on the screen;
14. Push OK;
15. When the file has loaded remove the USB from KBox;
16. Using the switch on the rear of the KBOX, reboot the KBox.

Tune to an ACTIVE NAG 3 channel, (CNN 200), is a safe one. Then wait a couple of minutes and TV should begin to pla

I'm a little bit confused with your message. You have a solid green light, then that means your khub should be working. You did flash your box with their firmware as well?
Do a scan and put it on channel 100 to make sure the non-encrypted channel is coming in and then change it to like channel 168 and see if you get a picture.

I am just not clear what you mean by downloading channels, did you mean you scanned for channels?

Just to answer your question on how long do you have to wait. Just seconds...... If you can count to 10 and a picture isn't coming in and it says connecting, then something is wrong.
Are you sure you are viewing a channel that is offered, I know you said basic, but just want to double check.

The only time I see that message is for PPV channels or some channel that I don't already have.
