« on: December 24, 2009, 01:20:40 PM »

Emergency Recovery Procedure
Download the latest Firmware from the Mede8er website. Unzip the file and you will find two files i.e. install.img and logo_pal_bmp. Copy both these files 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 and hold it pressed for 10 seconds and then release. The LED on the from fascia of the Mede8er with flash  red-blue and you will get a progress bar on your TV display (some TV's will not display this) wait until the Mede8er re boots itself +- 90 sec. Your Mede8er is now be updated. Re-boot once and use as normal.

NOTE: Once you update to V2.x you cannot easily go back to older versions if you are using an internal Hard Drive that was formatted with the Mede8er. The update process will not damage your Hard Drive contents but the Hard Drive will then be shown as HDD1 instead of C.  If you are not using an internal Hard Drive than you can roll back to a earlier version without any problems.  

A)  Do not update the Mede8er from the built-in update facility on the Setup screen  
B)  After the Firmware is Installed please re-boot the Mede8er – Unplug DC Jack
C)  Do not perform a Firmware Restore to update your Mede8er settings between v 1 and v 2 - rather set your settings manually
D)  Important: Set your TV Resolution on the Main Setup Menu – Video System - for the first time after firmware update.
