I've got a Amiko Combi, flashed FM, worked once before but died second time?

Any-body know where I get SW for dead Amiko Combi ie; loader through RS232?
Plus instructions?

i wouldn't bother trying to fix your box with RS232 cable, the usb ones don't work, you need the one with the 9 pin connector. the problem with these is that you need an old pc or laptop to connect it to (usually windows XP)
but to be honest i tried all this, got RS232 usb cable which didn't work, bought a used XP pc, bought 2 9pin RS232 cables (one from china which didn't work so got one from uk which didn't work) spent hours getting nowhere and ready to throw it thru the window.
i spent more than £100 trying to fix it, twice as much as a new amiko
so to be honest do what i did and buy a new amiko (mine was £53 from well known auction site) flash it yourself, add your line and enjoy, i was up and running in 20 mins
use this guide - /general-cable-tv/61348-amiko-mini-hd-combo-tutorial.html to set box up from scratch
life's too short!!!
