Amiko mini combo reboots while scanning for channel

    Hello All,

    I tried to scan for cable channels in Amiko mini combo hd box, it reboots itself half the way. I tried to scan multiple times but same result. [Sat channels are running fine with the box].

    I have latest lavatronics firmware (FTP updated to 13 Jan firmware).

    Your help is much appreciated.

    I am having the same problem, I have tried a few different firmwares but all seem to be rebooting when I'm scanning cable channels.

    It seems to be working fine with sat channels so, I don't think there's anything wrong with the box, unless I'm mistaken.

    Hope someone can help with this problem.

    Hello msolkar.. Finally I got this going. If your box has lavatronics firmware go to October 25th one and then scan it if that does not work go one earlier than that. For me October 25th firmware fixed it and I got channels scanned.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi mate
    Thanks for that, any chance you could tell me what version of firmware it is?

    The problem is that if I try to put the lavatories firmware on it by usb, box reboots and shows ident -----.
    I then have to install it by the com port.
    I will definitely give it a try tho.

    Wonder if the Cable Scanning issues have been fixed now with one of the most recent releases, you would think Lavatronics would be aware of such an issue, or maybe its not fixable....

    Thanks for replying, I know it makes little difference which FW is used, but I feel inferior using out of date Software/Firmware lol, I'm the kinda guy thats clicking every 5 mins check for new update on my android when one is due, not that 5.0.1 is better than 5.0.0 but I just want cutting/bleeding edge damn it!

    Which other Fw's are available I've only heard of the Stock Amiko and Lavatronics, I assume for a reasonably popular receiver there will likely be a couple more???

    Anyone know where you can get older Lavatronics firmwares? My box is constantly rebooting (and driving me mad) but the LAVATRONICS-282E-ALLSD+FTAHD-211014-COMBO.abs, muted as the solution is no longer on their downloads page? Help

    I should clarify - it reboots on pretty much every time I run any type of scan (dvb-c)

    Hi malty,

    Same issue here. try this link

    ---------- Post Merged at 03:45 PM ----------

    When I try and downgrade the firmware going through the Upgrade By USB option and using the 211014-COMBO.abs file it says download failed.
    Anyone able to help.

    ---------- Post Merged at 04:25 PM ----------

    Actually Not sure if the firmware will work for my box. The location is taking me into the Amiko Mini Combo Archive area. But the box I have is the Mini Combo HD SE.

    Anyone have the abs to fix the reboot issue for the Mini Combo HD SE ?


    ---------- Post Merged at 04:38 PM ----------

    Ok, Got it working. Use the latest lavatronics firmware dated 19062015.. Seems they have fixed the scan problem :)
    Now how do I get access to the hidden Line setup to add my line details....

    The layout has changed slightly to get into the Line setup due to the new firmware. But all working now. Reccomend downloading the latest firmware if you are having issues of the box rebooting when you do a scan.

    Been using this version thanks to your advice!

    Thank you for reporting it's been fixed! Been waiting for this to be sorted for ages and every firmware update they seemed to ignore it!

    Like mentioned, I prefer to be as up to date as possible also. Being on an old firmware bugged me, haha.

    I've tested this firmware but have personally gone back to the old previous working firmware. The scan detects nearly 800 channels but once that's done it only stores roughly 430. Usually a lot of channels I have 2 of - 1 works ok the other the picture is always going blocky (not a server issue), but quite a few channels have only 1 which the picture breaks up where others work fine.

    Hope this helps people out Googling this problem.

    Hi, I flashed mine with LAVATRONICS-282E-ALLSD+FTAHD-310714-COMBO.abs, which worked fine the first time I did it but the second time I tried I got IDENT error.
    Can you point me in the right direction for instructions on how to use the RS232 cable?
