AzBox Canada is proud to present firmware version 0.9.5400 for the Elite HD, Premium HD, Ultra HD and Premium HD Plus models.
It features many performance improvements and includes the Priority Manager 1.8 plugin preinstalled, courtesy of Buyukbang.  This plugin helps to manage the many processes running on the unit and terminates any unused ones based on the current activity in order to better manage system resources so the system as a whole should run much faster than before.

Several bug fixes and enhancements have also been made including:
- Fixed streaming from AzBox to PC which was broken since 0.9.5306
- Fixed recording issues
- Fixed timeshift performance
- Improved speed when changing channels
- New boot logo
- Updated North American satellites in list.  To use this list, you will have to do a factory reset after installing the firmware.
- Incorporated channels download functionality on our server where you can download empty or pre-scanned channel lists in order to make it easier to setup your system from scratch.  We will soon be adding channel lists for the most popular systems used here in North America.

If you have your receiver connected to your network, you may upgrade to this version simply by changing your update URL to http://fw.azbox.ca using the green button with Firmware upgrade  <- Internet -> selected in System information.  You may also update manually by downloading the firmware file from http://fw.azbox.ca using your computer and saving it on root level folder of your USB drive named as "patch.bin" and rebooting your AzBox with the drive plugged in.

Although this update won't erase your scanned channels, it is recommended to make a backup of your scanned channels if you haven't done so already in order to restore them if required.  You may do so by copying the following 3 files from your AzBox to your PC by using FTP

/DISK2/all_channels.dat
/DISK2/antenna_settings.dat
/DISK2/DVBS.dat

Hope you all love this new firmware and please do post some feedback of how it's working out for you.


Best regards,

P.S. Youtube has not been fixed yet with this version.  However, we will be looking into that soon.

If you are using an existing satellite list and are OK with it, you don't need to do a factory reset after loading this firmware. However, your satellite list will remain the same as what you are currently using now. All satellite settings should be preserved when installing this firmware assuming you are not upgrading from a really old version (i.e. older than 0.9.5xxx). Regardless, it is always a good idea to make a backup of your channels and satellite settings before doing any upgrade so that they can easily be restored if required.

For people who want to setup their receiver from scratch by configuring and scanning all satellites, doing a factory reset after installing this new firmware will allow the old satellite list to be upgraded to the new satellite list. This list has updated transponders, DCII transponders were removed from the list in order to reduce clutter and 87W was renamed from AMC 3 to SES 2.
