I purchased a brand new Openbox S9 which worked fine for a few minutes until I tried to update the firmware to skybox_S9_CMT_110717.

As soon as the upgrade completed, the display changed to the picture below.  

Edit:  I solved it with the following:

1.  Turn receiver off using back switch and turn back on
2.  press menu
3.  press down arrow three times
4.  press right arrow one time
5.  press down arrow one time
6.  push menu (center button)
7.  push right arrow and left arrows until picture comes back.

Hope this helps someone if they have the problem.

don't see the need to use another file. He is just pointing out that it defaulted to PAL on him and he had to switch it to NTSC without being able to see the menus.... Happens quite often with most STBs.

Fact is the version he chose to use seems to be the most stable of all of them.
Just that it probably came with a European Sat list, so on.
Again not a big deal...
Electrosat, thanks for placing that here, should make it easier to find should I ever need to do the same....

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!
