    This is new firmware and a config file, sent to me by Ron105, so all thanks go to him.

    BM5000s Firmware (unofficial) 09-01-14 - Downloads - TechKings

    Unzip the files.

    Load the ".ssu" file onto a pen drive.

    Menu - Setup - Update and Back Up - Image Upgrade.

    Pick the ".ssu" file and update the image.

    Box will reboot.

    Go to

    Channel - Blade Online

    Load the channel list for your area, eg, london, granada etc

    Box will reboot.

    Open the config file with notepad.

    Paste in your line

    C lines are at the top, N lines near the bottom, depending on what type you are using.

    Make sure you paste over the "#" at the start of each line you enter.

    Put it on your pen drive.

    Menu - Setup - Update and Back Up - Image Upgrade.

    This time pick the config file.

    Reboot your box, it doesn't do it automatically.

    Hold your breath and pace up and down a bit (optional)

    There is no 9991 option like on the BM7000s, the line is entered by USB
    with the config file provided. !!!! lol

    Good Luck !!! :thumbsup:

    Noticed it's only now and next but, I expect they will add
    something like the 7 day Epg channel at some stage like the BM7000s

    It is only just out so we will have to see how it develops. :)

    Sounds expensive for an £80-90 box with gift
    They must be trying to make about £100 per box.

    So you go into the menu instead of pressing 9991 on a channel to get into the server list?
    This box seems to do almost the same as the BM7000s for £60 less. Is there much difference in the spec? Doesn't seem to be at first glance.
