    Default File Question

    Hi all,
    Any vintage Viewsaters like me out there?
    I've been running one for years on IKS. My question is regarding the updated channel files in the file section.
    I am used to loading PGM files on my receiver and the updated files are not PGM files.
    Would like to update the channels as I have lots that are saying no longer available but don't want to make this receiver a doorstop.
    Anyone out there using them?
    Thanks

    you dont say whether you are discussing north or south
    it would help too if you posted what sw is currently on it
    If south the updated tp info is posted in general receiver discussion
    Compare it to what you have
    there are still some viewsatters kicking around ,just be patient

    I'm on both north and south using PFTAHDSW_110802H.pgm file.
    North guide seems fine. South guide has channels showing up that say no longer available on guide.
    Can live with it.....

    This is what we used to do:

    Power off by back switch
    Disconnect antenna
    Install Usb with files
    Power on
    Cleaner file first
    Factory default
    Factory file
    Factory default
    100510 or latest file... which mine is 110802H now.
    Power off
    Connect antenna
    Power on
    Rescan


    When you say factory reset, you have to add a bin file after do you not?

    Thanks for the reply!
