It has taken me over a month to fix my freakin 5 yr old ME computer which has a "Serial" port so I can flash the new bin on my Pansat 2700A box. When I try doing it with GTRom Loader v27.02 and I select "Boot File Only" it gives me "Error: Check the boot file." if I try to do "App file only" it just stands there for a while untill I cancel it. I got the _233 version off of www.future-fta.info and choosing the 2700A option. So if anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
It does flash b-7-5 when I turn it on..... the only thing I'm thinking is it might be the wrong cable. I think I ordered the wrong cable once and then had to order the right cable.... I got to find the other cable and make sure.
Ok. I found and tried the right cable. Same thing, when its on "Boot file" and I click download it says the same error. When I click "App file only" it still just stands there for a while untill I cancel it. Am I supposed to turn the receiver on or off after I turn it to "ON" from the back and which option am I supposed to use? The "Boot File" or "App File Only"?? And do you think that my version of windows might have something to with it?? I'm lost right now
Once the "write" starts, don't forget that you have to WAIT, W A I T, W A I T TILL the BURN is finished and then wait more till it goes to reboot - b75 and then ON. Then only you turn your receiver off.
OK. Tried it that way too. I dont see "Write Bin" on GTRom Loader it says download so i'll asume thats the same. I still get the same error. If I select "App File Only" and try the two methods (click at the same time as turning on and the other - wait for b to show) I still get the loading message that doesnt move anywhere. And if I try to do it with selecting "Boot File Only", and the two methods listed above, I STILL get the same error "Check the boot File"..... I tried turning the receiver off and both options give me the same message
Nemo i have a 2700a and i have the same problem sometimes it takes me a long time to get it to load . this is what i have learned i have two 27.02 loaders downloaded on my com . now the one that says write file would not work for me but the one that says download file does and also i noticed i cannot be online when i do it . i am going to try and do it again so i will post it if it works
Thanks David AND Nalin for helping, I havent had any channels for three months so I lerned some patience. Dave I'll try that too. Now I dont even know what cable is the right one so I'll have to retry everything with the other one. I'll be back in a while.
oh and by the way David or Nalin or anyone - which option do you use in the version of 27.02 that says "Download"? Is it "App File Only" or "Boot File Only"? OR is it the third "Channel Data File" and whats the difference. Thanks
OK I re-tried it with the other port I had on the back of the computer with the "click download when you see b" and I clicked download with "App File Only" selected and it worked.... I think my port on the front was just bad. I dont want to jinx anything yet because I'm still setting it up so ill see if it goes through the whole way but I think I'm good. I'll be back in a while
