    The only way to get a mismatch is if you used the firmware for the V8 PRO and not the V* COMBO---an error made by many.
    Factory reset your box---download the correct file and your box may accept.

    Very possible and to be honest I don't even know if the box is a Combo anymore. The box it came in says so but nowhere on the actual box. How can I find out?
    Under the box I see a serial number starting: V8PBOX12345678
    Would that mean the box is a V8Pro? ( V8P )

    Some screenshots attached if it helps.....

    Thank you

    You are the proud owner of a V8 PRO not Combo, repeat, not combo.
    So download last known firmware for pro and start again---if you need the special cable then contact me.

    Ah that would explain a lot. Thanks Reaper. I have already bought a cable , hooefully the right one. I got a
    URBEST 5M Vigor VH VB Series PLC Programming Cable 16.5Ft USB 2.0 to RS232 DB9. Is that the correct one?

    Simple answer--NO
    That cable is totally wrong m8---you need a specialized lead and program.
    Go into conversations and we will talk shop.

    For those with the GTT box a new OTA firmware has been released.
    When you are offered upgrade via message on screen you can try to upgrade--if successful a final screen will show pretty planes flying and chinese writing---all you need to do when this page appears is press the OK button on remote and then carry on as normal.
    The upgrade will allow small system bugs to be fixed plus upgrade mobdro and also stabilize a few apps including the GT Media iptv.

    The built in iptv on the GTT/GTC boxes is really showing the way forward now although I find the GTC box a bit expensive for a lot of people. Personally I'll stay with the basic sat V8/V7 boxes and the little GTT box.

    The firmware will only install in the GTT/GTC boxes and as I said before xmas, it will not work on any other android--hackers have already tried and failed---also unless you have an activation code it will not work.The program on that other box is just another form of money raising [like a "bakers" self raising LOL

    A very quick OTA upgrade released for the GTT/GTC boxes.
    This will sort the powervu keys and remove the GT Media apk from menu---to get to the GT Media go into settings---apps and locate GT Media app and open---very simple and ensures the app now loaded within the android.
