    Downloading Problem

    Hi
    I have viewsat xtreme.. and i was downloading the files with no problems. Since 14th dec 07 when the new file came out and i tried to download it..the loader gets stuck at the downloading point. it says 0 % and remains like that. I tried various things to fix it..it did not work. I am affraid my serial port might have gone bad ? or there could be another problem ?

    An easy way of testing your serial post is with a loopback cable. Are you running XP or Vista? Or may i even say it Windows 98, 95, OR 3.11??? haha

    Is this an older computer or are you useing a USB to Serial adapter? Because we don't know your system please be as specific as you can.

    OK, cable is right now i'm not too vista, umm, how do i say. I have never used vista for any length of time and am unsure of how to go about fixing that problem.

    All i can recomend is the last time you fixed your dish did you install and programs prior to the reboot? Change any settings? (dought it but still worth mentioning) or anyting out of the ordanary?

    you can try a lopback test but requires a loop back cable. Try pluging in a serial mouse? There cheap
