i understand..just thought it was worth mentioning so you werent wondering if it had something to do with the psu.

regarding the router, it doesnt have to be permanent..just as a test.

Ok, I gotcha. Are you saying I should just hook up an ethernet cable and see if I can connect? I'm pretty sure that is what you mean. If that works, how can I upload my DVBS.dat files to it through the ACC?

yes thats exactly what i am saying. plug your computer and the azbox into the router at the same time. make sure you set the computer and router to obtain IP address automatically (dynamic).
both devices will be on the same subnet and you can the use ACC to connect to the azbox from your computer. you can get the IP address of the azbox from the azbox's settings menu.

i would also try reformating and reinstalling a stable version of the firmware before doing any other testing

I did a reformat and installed 5309 in February.  When you go into Network Service under Dynamic DNS, Setting

Do I need to enter settings for DNS system, Host name, User name, and password?   Mine is currently blank. I can't remember if I ever messed with that before or not?

Under File server I see,  Work group, MYGROUP,    Server MMP,   Account root, Password passwd

Re Dynamic DNS, that isn't necessary at all. I think that's a service to give DNS info to other devices. The DNS used by the azbox is set in the internet section.
Dynamic IP DHCP can't normally be used with a cross cable since most PCs don't have a DHCP server enabled, which might be what Merkin was getting at in the post with a link. But I would recommend only using dynamic if connected via regular cable to a switch or router.  Is your computer on a wired LAN or wireless? I can see potential problems if you are on wireless, and try to set up the Azbox on a wired NIC using the same subnet.  And if your computer is on 192.168.1.10 on wireless, that doesn't mean your wired NIC is on that IP#. If you're on a wired LAN disregard that comment, but if you're on wireless, check the configuration on the wired NIC, and I'd suggest using a different subnet from what is being used on wireless since your computer won't know which NIC to use unless you set up a specific route to the azbox. 
 
You don't need ACC to upload DVBS.dat files.  You can do that with generic FTP in Windows or Linux.
I never use ACC or other azbox editor programs.  I use generic ftp when I need to upload or download .dat files.  I'd suggest experimenting with both ftp and telnet using the Windows command prompt to see if you can get a connection.  Ie for FTP just type ftp followed by the IP# of the azbox, and use root for user and azbox for password.  Use bye to leave FTP.  Same for telnet, except I think you use exit to leave telnet.  If those work, you can upload the DVBS.dat via FTP and not have to deal with ACC. 
 Re HDMI, I've had problems with HDMI cables and HDMI switches at times with newer TVs and a lot of devices, but usually they fix themselves after rebooting both devices, and the azbox HDMI has really been trouble free for me, so I don't know what to suggest for that.

I've been using my laptop with a crossover cable straight to Azbox and uploading files with ACC. I set my laptop LAN setting to static 192.168.1.10 and the Azbox to 192.168.1.20 

I even have a notepad file I made with step by step instructions since I only had to log in once in a blue moon.  Doing it this way worked fine. 

What I like about using ACC is that it writes to the backup file and thus no problems with the Eastern Sats coming back.  Does your method do that?  

Regarding HDMI, I've used process of elimination. It's definitely the box. I'll have to just use component for it.

You didn't mention whether your laptop is on the same subnet for wireless.  You might try using 192.168.100.10 and 192.168.100.20 .

Re writing to the backup files, that is exactly why I refuse to use ACC. I believe it makes it more likely to store corrupted dat files in the backup directory, and it is a quick fix to recover to clean .dat files via generic FTP. 

Re HDMI, you may be right, but I've been convinced at times that I had HDMI hardware failure only to have it come back to life later, so I wouldn't give up on it.

Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 That is what had always worked before. That's what I don't understand unless it's the board. I'll see if it does eventually come back.

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.
