I don't know what's happened, but there is no video output for the tv.
No HDMI video reaches the tv
When I connect it trough the AV port, the tv screen flashes with some boot logos when the box is booting, but I can not read nothing. When finish booting there is no image at all on the screen.
I think that the firmware is corrupted. Maybe I tried to install something that went wrong, but I don't really remember.
So as I can't see nothing trough tv screen, How can I reinstall the firmware? I'm completely blind.
I can go to the upgrade mode (by pressing reset and connect the power), but after that I cant see the options to choose the .zip file to upgrade.
I know that I'm on that menu, but it flashes so fast that I can read to choose the option to reinstall firmware.
can anyone help me?
First, you should check your HDMI connection (both cable and TV side) if it works with other device. On A/V you're receiving scrambled output because TV output mode is set to 720p or 1080p resolution you used for HDMI and analogue video (composite) can provide you only with 480i/576i resolution.
So, basically, scrambled picture on TV over A/V cable is ok - device is working
