i aquire today a Mede8er 500, inc HD
but when i plug the USB cable into my computer nothing happends.
i use Windows 7 Ultimate.
and when i switch to the Media box, it shows only a 8.
it dont respond to any commands, including turn off.
i kind of lost, help
problem solved, the HD needed format, but it was lock down, with the USB in the system.
I have the same problem. how did you manage to format the disk? I can access it in windows now, finally, but still it will only display a large 8 on screen, and after a while, it just stops sending anything to the screen at all. changing the input channel I tried: did not help. also, I tried using a regular cable, instead of the HDMI cable, which gives no signal whatsoever, even when trying to change the output signal.
does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
edit: I think it's safe to rule out the harddisk. it also will not boot without a harddisk.
