    I've downloaded the latest ssu file from the first page of this thread, and gone through the part where it says blade online. But when I try and load the .cfg file the usb stick isn't recognizing it?

    M8 I find the easiest way is just to do it by hand. Write the details in, it always works and saves bother.

    Thanks for the reply, I have sorted the CFG file out and my current provider has locked my mac address to the service, pulling my hair out thinking why isnt it working lol

    Hi folks I've a bm8000 the set up is similar but weirdly I notice that the channels are all over the place and there is a lot not coming in.

    I'm guessing I need to set up s fav list.

    I downloaded a fab list from blade online at the correct satellite and it's not much changed

    Am I doing anything silly

    Be very careful !!!!! if you press OK to upgrade, sometimes the box will explode :fartlight:

    Just follow the guide, it works :thumbsup:

    does the EPG still work, my boss has just brought one of these in for me to sort and i followed the excellent Tut, Thanks Bees. but the only thing i was not getting to work was the EPG, i tried putting the USB stick (front and Back) then pressing EPG choosing download everything appears to be working downloads then parsing channels box reboots then when i go to EPG all that is there is channel i am on shows now and next, whenever i move across or to another channel it just says searching.

    if i am missing something then just shout, as i may have missed something after a tiring 12 hour grueller

    Hi guys, just wanted to ask a question. I have recently set up a few skybox f5's with c-lines and I have since acquired a brand new Blade BM 5000s. I have checked with the supplier of my lines and he said they will work ok. My question is, I am unfamiliar with these boxes, do I have to follow all the steps in page 1 of this to "set it up" or can I just install the c-line straight off?

    The box comes flashed with official firmware.

    Patched firmware for this box in known as a 9991 version.

    Put the patched version on, also load the config file on to the box, press menu then 9991 on the remote then you can add your line.

    So basically, just follow the guide lol

    just wondering I have bought a new box. it has 9991 option with pre installed firmware but doesn't clear channels with line entered manually
    Do I need to install sept firmware

    Haha thanks Bees. Will do that. Can I ask what a "config" file is and what it does? I don't think I had to install this on my f5
