Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only negative so far is that it takes nearly a minute to load up from standby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent little box. does everything as spec. had to download latest software version from website but no problem as it found the update itself. getting the remote to recognise the TV for on/off and volume was a challenge until i looked at the manual and downloaded my TV codes (LG had 21). you have to keep trying them in turn until one works. yippee the 4th one worked and bingo!! staff at Maplins Eastbourne were as always first class! thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stephen from Ormskirk Very very pleased with this purchase. Easy to use & understand. Only fault is the time it takes from standby to turn on. Apart from that it does everything i want it to do.

Today I attempted to update the firmware on my echostar purchased at maplin. It would appear that the update failed and my device is now stuck in a constant loop. Can you give me a link to a working firmware that I can install, if necessary via usb stick?

Will this product work connected to a 12 volt supply ie a cigar socket in a motorcaravan?

Asked by: Trish
This can't be connected directly to a 12v supply as it uses a mains power adaptor. If however you mean to invert your 12v supply back to mains power then yes this will work.

Support on this product is no longer available from echostar. I'm having an issue with some recordings not keeping proper timing. Eg: 1:00:00 is an hour long program however it sometimes shows it as 0:00:35 This affects fast forwarding and rewinding. 

Asked by: Miguel
Hi Miguel, I have EXACTLY the same problem as you state. Tried a shipping condition reset, but didnt cure it. Was hoping a software or firmware re-flash would cure it but support pages have vanished !?
