OK - I've changed the password and now have access to all the files on the box.

Are there any files that you want me to post here?

no framebuffer available

So indeed, a failed security board.

 

If you scroll back through the dmesg output, you'll see a similar message and an error about loading the drivers.

If all the files are available and accessible - and I can get access to the box - then what is stopping the box from starting up?

So the online software update has buggered my box for some reason?

What can this be and what would have done this?

Is there anything that I can do to fix it somehow - or is it a brick now?

I'm afraid it's just a coincidence.

 

And yes, it's a brick now, unless the manufacturer either offers new security boards as a repair (Xtrend did for a while), or releases new drivers in which the security board check is removed. Since it is an EoL box, and the changes of the chinese cloning this outdated design is virtually zero, I'd say removing the check is the way forward.

 

But we don't control that, all we can do is ask, and push for a solution.

So is there a way we can contact them and ask them?

No we have, yes we can get - and lets face it, these receivers where advertised as being great value a few years ago.

For you as a consumer, your retailer is the first step, they sold you a product with a design/production fault. They can contact their distributer, and they in turn can contact the manufacturer.

 

In the meantime, we've already contacted the people we know, but don't hold your breath, as it is an EoL box, the chances of them willing to further invest in it will be small. We've seen a similar (lack of) response from Xtrend.

Well lets hope many other users will see this topic and as such will change there thoughts on buying these products then.

 

Please update this topic should you hear that they have changed their minds on this and taken the security codes away.

I will be looking now for something else - and guess what, not a Maxdigital nor a Xtrend.

 

Any ideas for a small good HD box? Don't want 4K yet - too early and will not change my screen yet.

 

Thanks for your help nevertheless - you do take your changes with the Chinese - and you cannot beat 'coincidences' - its like winning the lottery I suppose.

I can only give you personal experiences. I have (in the same segment) a VU+ Zero and an Edision OS Mini+ in use, and both do their job just fine.

 

Note that the Zero is sold as a "zapper", of out the box it can't record.

One more idea I'm wondering if this would work???

 

Could it be if you put the ORIGINAL image on that the Maxdigital XP1000 came with???

That surely would have all the correct drivers and codes in it?

 

Or is this wishful thinking?

If not - where could I download an original image to try?

The problem is not the drivers, the problem is the security board. And that is hardware.

 

The SB registers itself as a USB device (you can see it with lsusb if it is working), the drivers talk to it, and if it refuses to respond, or give the incorrect response, the drivers don't load. The SB is there for protection against the box being cloned in China.

 

As mentioned before, the SB is powered by a small battery, and if that runs out, or losses it's connection, the memory chip on the SB looses it's data, and the SB no longer works.

 

So there are only two possible solutions: get a replacement board from your dealer, or get a driver without the SB check from the manufacturer.
