Yes sure Tony,.. if I am successful I will of course let you know. I have a feeling though that the date of termination,.. 01/01/2017 may not have been a coincidence, but perhaps built into the patch??
I would though, like to access the original thread to refresh on a few things..
 
Regards, Liam

IIRC a reflash resolved the issue... but I could be wrong

I had thought this patch no longer worked as from 1/1/2017..  
My boxes all lost recording function having lost one tuner? I would be interested to know if these have started to work again or need to be reworked..
Regards, Liam

I'd stick with Win7 if you are able to, Win10 does odd things!
 
The Thompson box could be modified but are not easy to get hold of!

Thanks Steve, I'll keep you posted, I have got the diagrams and software downloaded
 
Will this Jtag process work on Win 10 or am I better sticking to Win 7 ?
 
Was there no other box that this was ever possible to do to, I hear a while back there was a Thomson box that could be modded also !
 
Thanks

I've been going to try this for years, I have someone I know selling an old 2nd Gen 3100
 
Would this still work in 2018 ?
 
Would be ideal for recording the odd channel etc
 
Thanks

That would be perfect, can we broadcast this question on the site main page to see if anyone has?

Has anybody managed to catch OTA firmware for one of the HD boxes?
That they could possibly upload.
My DVB-S card is playing up at the minute and giving errors.

Hiya
 
I think you have bought a DVB-T stick, which would work for Freeview via a rooftop antenna, for satellite you need DVB-S (or S2 for HD)

Okay I understand what you are saying. But my knowledge of these sorts of things is very very basic. I have hobby level electronics understanding but would like to set this as a long term project. Just for fun to see if I can do it. I don't want to hack anything or get free s*y.  
 
I have bought this (because i'm a poor student ahha) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KWORLD-DVB-USB2-0-STICK/132262484340?ssPageName=STRK%3 AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
 
Will it do what you have said? After some 3rd party software etc.

Hiya
 
You could try catching one of the OTA firmware updates if you have a DVB-S card attached to a computer, some useful software here for that http://www.ph-mb.com/products/sky-fw-tool
 
If you grab an update image it would at least give you an idea of what the software side looks like, just a case of getting it back into the box - which isn't that easy

Have you any clue how I would go about that? I have never jtag anything before. Is there a program I would use to interface with the chip? Where would I take the pins for jtag?  Tongue

You would need to get into the bootloader, and assume the CPU in the box is supported.
 
Technically it is possible to create a flash image, the trick would be getting at the internals of the bootloader, might be doable via jtag or the USB port

Hi, seeing as the S*ky + HD boxes are virtually free now, just being left all over the streets of England. is there any way to load a linux distribution onto these boxes for boinc rigs? Thanks Cool

Unfortunately still not having look with JTAG/i2c. The msi file is the correct one for BBS so that isn't the problem. I managed to find somewhat of a chip diagram (_http://www.2shared.com/document/nkt6a6wF/BCM7335_EJTAG.html).
After looking at this it took me to somewhere else on the board for the i2c port but still the same result. When the cypress board is connected the box fails to boot properly but nothing past that.

I still think its possible to connect to the box but i'm wondering if the chip is somewhat 'password protected' What I mean by that is you would need to use a key sequence or command to connect. Again no luck with this either so far.

If anyone has any other ideas on this let me know what you think

 
Has anyone got a working link for the drx890 chip?
