I recently downloaded a patch for my Silvercrest SL 65 satellite receiver. I had the receiver connected to the PC and clicked onto the patch file and nothing happened. So does anyone know what I missed out in doing?
“I had the receiver connected to the PC and clicked onto the patch file and nothing happened.” In general, if you have connected the correct lead to the computer and receiver, then as the download starts the receiver should blank out and then finally reboot.
Your receiver uses a RS-232 port. The trouble here is that some leads differ in their wire to pin connections. Pins 2 & 3 should be crossed over. If you wish to software upgrade from satellite, you will need to tune to the Astra 19.2 degrees satellite. Look for Comag. This method will take around an hour.
Personally if the receiver is working ok I would leave well alone. A blip on the update download can render your receiver useless and void the 3 year guarantee.
