I recently obtained an Azbox Premium + HD
It has OpenATV on it. It boots to OpenATV.

I've been scanning the net trying to find instructions for converting it back to stock Az firmware.

The best I can tell, is that I need to put firmware on a thumb formatted in FAT, name the file patch.bin and boot the receiver with the thumb drive installed.

Is it just that simple?
Which bin should I load, and where can I find it?

Any help is appreciated. Is there a tutorial or instructions for this anywhere?

BTW, I'd prefer instructions from Linux, however I can use Windows too if need be.

Thanks,

Won't let me see it!  Says I have to log in.
Can you save it as a pdf and attach it here?
thanks,

The web archive seems to come back with some old versions of that URL, in Spanish.  I don't know how to use the translator thing to see if it is what you need.
Hopefully lilo can help with an english version.  I don't think it's as easy as just putting the patch file on the thumb drive.  I think that is for updating an Azbox with original software on it.  I think once you get that alternative software on there it is more complicated, because they alter the update software. 
   Even if you did have the original stuff on there, it sometimes gets complicated if you're reverting to an older version.  I did that a couple times, and it took a few tries before I got it to work right. 
   I'm pretty sure that there are instructions for reverting from some alternative firmware on this forum, but it might be hard to search for the posts.

I did some searching, and yes it's rough. We could use a Files section, and a tutorials(how-to) section. But most times things are fairly easy to find with the search function, it's just that I don't know what this would be called and where it might be..LOL!! I'll try again.

Thanks,

And with some more searching I also found a site to download;

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
