Many thanks mate, but my problem is that the box is not sending any signal to the TV, I cannot even see the boot screen or anything. It has something to do with the modulation from the box to the TV. I loaded the Spaze 2.2 image onto the box and it is there OK, even went into the setup helper thingy, but the only place I could see it is on the front of the box. Loading any image is handy enough and I do have the box sending, or rather that should be trying, to send anything to the TV in the HDMI format, a HDMI cable from the box to the TV and the TV on HDMI input. At the moment I am not bothered about the box getting anything from the LNB, my problem is between the box and the TV.

Thanks again and best regards Wez


Did you try to access using the Web interface to see if it is actually up and running. Did you try scart?

Does anyone know where I can pick up a replacement remote control for an Axbox Elite, or even an Azbox premium? Will one of them universal ones work?

http://en.azbox-hd.com/accesorios Postage is expensive but try other german suppliers, there may be cheaper delivery rates.

https://www.hm-sat-shop.de/checkout.html Hope you know a bit of German

Not sure about universals, there is a free windows remote for pc and a paid android app for smartphones as well for €1.50 or so.

you could use dreamdroid on the phone for the (virtual) remote if you have android.

I have an Elite which I bricked updating the firmware. just says Booting...
I have tried the recovery using a serial conection to a jumper block on the main board.
I have set everything correctly I think, baud rate 15200, but I just get gibberish on the screen, as if the baud rate was not correct.
Can Anyone help?
Maybe I need a jtag to fix it. anyone with any experience jtaging the elite?
or
Is there anywhere I can sed it for repair. I have it a few years.
Thanks
KK

A bit more googling and I see I need an RS232/TTL converter.

Anyone have an issue with OpenAZBox PLi MOD HD Release - 7 - image. It bricks my Elite when I install.
Ive had to use the fix posted by @jimmyjim11 to get it working again
I am currently using OpenRSI-3.0-azboxhd which works fine, in fact Im very happy with it.

is that not a really old image at this stage? I use OAM² HD on my elite and the latest OPenRSI on the Prem+ and they are both fine. I think the OAM² HD is a bit quicker changing channel.

I have the same problem with my Elite HD. Did you manage to get an internal power supply?

Hi Rogerthis, no luck I'm afraid. Brought it to SatCity in Limerick, they thought they could fix it, got parts in an all but when they sorted the PSU found other faults on the main board they couldn't fix. So dead Azbox...

Got a Gigablue HD800 UE from world-of-satellite, very happy with it, running OpenVIX on it.
Excellent replacement for the Azbox. Cost ~200 using Parcel Motel for delivery..

I did try ebay but nobody was selling a PSU for Elite HD. I tried emailing anyone I could find that sell Azbox STB's. The only site to get back was hm-sat.de, who pass me on to their supplier impex-sat.de. impex-sat said it was €19 + vat and delivery. I haven't ordered it yet, waiting for them to get back.
