    Has anyone tried the firmware from this ftp site?

    U110781_1109050_HW.osk

    Just wonder what might have been changed.

    It would be useful for a changelog of what has changed in each release.

    Yes and at last they have fixed up the wired LAN problem where it never reconnected when switched on from standby. If only they could fix the fickle HDMI interface which is so selective as to what device it works with, all would be great.

    Thanks ZilverZurfarn

    Its a great pity these F/W updates dont come with a log of changes. I hate not knowing what has been changed in an update. Lets hope someone can tell us. Thanks for the fast link.

    I would like to see support for a USB HSDPA Dongle to connect to the internet. This would make this unit much more useful to me when away from home.

    Have you found any improvements in this firmware? I assume you have already tried it?

    Thanks for the reply.

    What about Remote Desktop? I can't get it work. It stucks when I enter to login. Loads forever.

    Maybe you guys know alternative apps for controlling Android device from pc.

    Edit:

    I found an app called Webkey, I can control the TV Box from my PC. It's a little bit laggy (it can be from my modem) but I can control it aint I? :)

    Been there, done that. Only solution I could find, was to create a firmware update SD card, and have the unit update firmware. I'll keep that SD card safe! Had to try 3 different computers, before I managed to find one where SDTool worked.

    Well, the FV-1 is supposed to play HD video. However, it only outputs 1024x600 AFAIK. Might be the same with this device?

    Do I need to have a sd card reader?

    I downloaded Windows XP Live CD Edition and VMware. Booted up Windows XP on VMware now.

    I hope it work...

    Well, yes, as SDTool waits for the SD card to be inserted in a SD card reader (built in or USB adapter) on the computer.
    If you're feeling adventurous (and used to Linux), I suspect all SDTool does, is to dump the .osk file on the SD card, so it may work with Linux and dd command.

    I dont have any built in or USB adaptor. I have my phone and I will try it with it. This thing is so annoying. This device has to have a recovery mod or something like I have on my Android phone..

    Edit: It gives me same error called "Errorcode(001)" on Windows XP (VMware) as it gives me on Windows 7.

    Edit 2: I'm not use to Linux, but if you can explain to me it would be nice.
    VMWare has linux os too.

    If your computer doesn't have anywhere to insert the SD card, you're pretty dead in the water. Possibly your phone could be used as a USB SD card adapter (creative thinking!). Keep in mind tho, that the SD card will be completely erased in the process.
    If you're not a Linux veteran, I wouldn't dream of walking you thru a process that I don't know will work, and haven't dared try myself.
    What is giving you "Errorcode(001)" and at what stage in the process does it occur?

    SDtool_v1.1A giving Errorcode thing when I press to "Detect" but funny I downloaded the chinese one (SDtool_v1.0) and its fully worked I guess. It said something at the end but I didn't understand it. Its chinese. Lol.

    I connected this sd card (with my phone of course) and it can't open that sd card. Is this is a good thing?

    Then I connected to TV box and restarted TV box (unplugged and plugged), its still at Android logo, shouldn't be nothing on the screen?

    Yes, when you boot the box with the firmware update SD-card inserted, there should be no logo on screen. It's a completely "silent" process. From the documentation:
    From your description, it seems like the box isn't detecting the SD card as a firmware update card...

    SDTool v1.1A giving error when I press to "Detect"

    EDIT2:


    OMG It worked! I formatted the sd card and then I did the same thing with SDTool v1.0 (chinese one) Then I connected to TV Box restarted the device and now the green led indicator stays on.

    Thank you ZilverZurfarn for the great help. I appreciate!

    It sure looks like the Chinese version succeded (which the English version obviously does not). If the box doesn't see the SD card as a firmware update, I'm out of ideas...
