Finally  :D  The all new V2.0.1 Firmware that has been many many months in the making

The New V2.0.1 has lots of new functionality so its VERY IMPORTANT that you download and read the user manuals .

XXX THIS RELEASE IS FOR X2 SERIES -- IT WILL NOT WORK ON MED500X or MED400X  XXX

IMPORTANT: ONLY INSTALL VIA EMERGENCY METHOD AND DO NOT USE CONFIG RESTORE
AFTER THE UPDATE WE SUGGEST YOU UNPLUG AND REBOOT THE X2 AND THEN CONTINUE

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.
