    HI guys!

    I have an old skybox and so far i've never had any issues upgrading my channel list. Today I updated it and now it get's to about 100 and reloads. I guess they call it a bootloop? Anyways, I have no idea what to do. I had 2 of these boxes and recently upgraded 1 of them to the v8s box and that's fine but I was hoping to see if I can fix my old box before I go and buy another v8s. Any suggestions would help and be appreciated. Thank you!

    You are using an incorrect firmware download.
    Please say which file you are using and where it came from.

    You are using the wrong firmware and possibly the wrong erom upgrade tool.
    Go to conversations and give me your e-mail address and I will send you both files.
    Please remember that your box may not be working therefore no guarantee of success.
