I am trying to update the official AZBox firmware to OpenRSI firmware on an AZBox Elite using the online process. I have updated the URL to http://www.openrsi.org in the setup menu, activated the update and selected the top file in the list named "160512 OpenRSI" but when I try to update it immediately goes to "Downloaded...100%" followed by a message "Error Fail to update". Is this URL now out of service?

I then tried the AZUP method by powering up the AZBox while holding down the Volume+ button on the remote control to get the IP address on the AZBox display. The IP address does not display, the box just boots up as normal and goes to a satellite channel.

I then tried opening AZUP and manually entering the AZBox OP address that it has (, ticked the "Kernel Only" option and clicked the GO button for the kernel upgrade. I got an error message saying I had an old version of the kernel and needed to update it.

The current firmware in the box is 0.9.5308 AZBox Elite HD and I made sure that Hardware Acceleration was OFF

Surely there is a simple way to update these boxes, I have tried the recommended options and none of them work. Why is it so difficult to work with an AZBox? All I want to do is to get OpenRSI onto the box so I can have familiar menus that I have on a dreambox.

Is it possible to update both the kernel and the firmware using a USB stick to get from the official firmware to OpenRSI firmware or is that not an option?

Any help most appreciated.

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!
