Hi,



Can someone let me know where I can get the previous version file for my MAG 254 set top box.  It seems that Infomir removed the older files from its website, and the new Informir update 254/0.2.18-r23 does not work with my IPTV provider’s IPTV server.  I need 254/0.2.18-r22 version of the firmware because,  I am getting STB Blocked on my MAG STB/TV.


Thanks in advance.

If your portal's blocked then it is cause by infomir's clone kill code. Infomir don't like Chinese clone. So downgrading of firmware should not help you. for more details contact me on https://www.linuxsat-support.com/cms/user/325432-kalpesh/

I had same issue with when I use Kingston's flash drive. I used different format tools but still it's was not working. So I changed to sandisk's flash drive and it's working now.
