    Do a single sat blind scan---locate missing channels and install in favs.

    There is no longer any reason to use a usb key on a v8s---two reasons--a] there is now a network upgrade ota installed in box which allows upgrade of firmware and channel lists and b] it was found that overuse of the usb keys plus some dodgy downloads were causing the boxes to brick or become unresponsive. If you lose a few channels then best to do a blind scan and locate all or do an ota upgrade by going Menu--network settings--network upgrade--connect and choose the firmware or channel list for your box.
