I dont want to flash back to 2.9.3 if I dont have to, any help is appreciated.
You're not the only one, mine does the same thing after updating to 2.9.5. But here's an even tougher challenge I dare anyone to fix:
I picked up a few of these boxes for $8 each locally for family to use. Both appeared to be set to the wrong video mode (no video output); I only have standard definition RCA input on my TV's. The first one I used the sub-to-fta 2.7.5 flash on, at which point the video came back, then upgraded it to 2.9.5. All done, all working- hooray! One down.
The second one refuses any upgrade. Because the video is set wrong, I have no way of checking what firmware it currently has. I know it's working because I can change channels and listen to different audio... but can't switch the video over. Any upgrade I put in does nothing. The unit checks that it is there (USB drive's LED blinks rapidly during bootup), but then won't use it. I've tried the pre-2.7.5 to 2.9.3 update; I've tried the sub-to-fta update; I've tried the 2.9.5 update. None trigger the upgrade process.
Before you say it, I don't have an original USDTV remote. I'm using a Sony RM-VL600 universal because it's the only one I can find that 1) works and 2) isn't a "learning remote" that costs over $50. And no, the latest All4One's do NOT all have the Hisense code. The URC-3021 I bought new doesn't have it, in the manual, online, or using Search. So that puts me back at square one.
Thanks to the wonderful continuing work on the firmware, if I COULD get it to update to 2.9.5, I could use the hidden shortcut to cycle video output until hitting Composite/S-video. In the meantime, I have a nice-looking brick which only produces sound
I've looked at my box's 2.9.5 menus, and tried navigating it blind (Menu, down three, OK, down six, OK, OK, OK, OK...) but I guess whatever firmware it has doesn't match up to the current options. Anyone with any ideas? I'd be okay if it were broken, but it's NOT- it's just stuck on the wrong output!
