    Help With Viewsat Xtreme 2000

    Hello All,

    I have a Viewsat 2000 Extreme. I downloaded the loader 2.1 and the proper bin....but when I go to load the file, it doesn't work. It connects, but when I try to upload it, it stays at 0% and keeps saying "sending ZRQINIT"....and "resending ZRQINIT". When I press cancel, it says "Error Download".

    Any ideas?

    This is the first time I'm using Viewsat Extreme.....If someone please send me link or explain me on how to flash the latest firmware and boot code..I would really appreciate...

    I'm new to this stuff....


    Thanks.

    Hello there. First of all what kind on computer do you have? Are you useing a USB to serial adpter? I have had problems with clients haveing problems with the USB to serial. If this is the case get an old computer (doesn't take much to program yer stb).

    Also make sure you are sending PC -> STB, you want to send the file to the reciever and not reciever to the pc.

    Also to program your reciever you need to start the reciever pc to stp and shut off the power in the back of your reciever, wait a few secs and then turn it back on.

    Hope that helps.

    Hello Angel,

    I have old PC that has built in Serial Port. I'm also sending the file PC -----> STB.. I have tried different loaders, but same results... Every time I try to upload the file to the receiver,
    I get a message " BadZSINIT" .... Do you think it could be a cable problem? I'm using the cable that I received with my CS5000...
    Any help would be highly appreciated...

    Thanks in advance..
    Eakum..

    OK, you are useing an old computer, Go into the bios and make sure the UART is enabled. It should be in the serial and the ports section. Try that before you switch the cable.

    The problem sounds more like a sync issue to me. If it doesn't connect then it'll just sit there but this problem is erroring. If the com port on the loader is wrong the error pops up "Unable to open comport".

    But then again that could be the issue. Anything is worth trying..

    You can turn off autoroll and enter the keys maunaly or get a program called VSkey to do it for you. There is the option of a new program as well.

    Re: Help With Viewsat Xtreme 2000

    The keys are correct, and even if I turn off the autoroll it says "no video or audio". I can only get a few channels now. I've deleted the channels and scanned them again but the message is still the same. Should I turn off the box between downloading echo star 7 and 8/10?
    Thanks
