« on: August 24, 2015, 06:33:38 am »
Hi there

I have had my 250x a while now and this error recently appeared:
"unknown hardware , cannot read software"

I installed the firmware and the error is still displayed on my TV.

Please help

Pls try install this firmware and it should fix the 'unknown hardware' problem

Update Procedure
Use a USB Stick that is formatted fat32 in Windows PC. If you have any difficulty we suggest you format the USB stick with the HP Utility -
UnZIP or UnRAR the file and you will find one file named install.img. Copy this file to the root directory of a Flash Drive. Plug the flash drive into the Mede8er. Disconnect the power jack at the rear of the Mede8er then plug it back in - Now press the on/off button on the Mede8er (not the remote) and hold it pressed for 10 seconds and then release.

After approximately 15 seconds the LED on the Mede8er with flash red-blue and you will get a display of the progress of percentage installed on your TV display (some TV's will not display this) wait until the Mede8er re boots itself +- 180 sec. You Mede8er is now be updated.
