Pls use the Emergency update Procedure

Emergency Method (Resets Configuration to Default)
Format USB stick to FAT32. Unzip the firmware and copy the Install.img to the root of the USB stick. 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 20 seconds and then release.

After approximately 15 seconds the LED on the Mede8er with flash 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 +- 60 sec. Your Mede8er is now updated.

Pls do not use the GUI install for the first time you install this update as the restore dBase has been updated.



If you cannot download the complete install file from the above link you can try this

Pls download HJ Split to join the files

Download all the following 4x files and join them with HJSplit


MP3 Embedded Album Art should be re-sized to correct and fast system operation. You can use this program but Mede8er does not support it in any way.

For those who do not have Y2M / Thumbgen xml data I suggest you download this demo to see the true power of the X2
