      • Hi,
        I have tried the solution you posted above on my Mediastar MS-Mini 1616, but the receiver isn’t loading the software on my flash drive. Its only switching between Booting and Update on the receiver while I’m holding the power button on the receiver, and when I release the power button after some minutes, it’ll just go back to showing booting on the receiver.

        Kindly assist with the right solution.

        Warm regards.
