  • RS232 port inside the Finder
  • A 4-pin connection with wire see picture no2

STEPS TO DOWNGRADE OR REVIVE DEAD FREESAT V8 FINDER

  •  Firstly, you need remove the plastics cover using the screw driver gently anticlockwise

  •  Cut the 4-pin connection to the size needed and also cut the plastic of the 4-pin connection fit the RS232 in picture 1 above inside the finder which is the as that of freesat v7hd

  •  Make sure you read the wire using meter to know to the status of the connection with wire is good or bad

  • Connect the wire end to the null cable or RS232 serial cable as Pin 1 is at the top right of the null modem D9 connector and 5 at the top left as shown in this pic and Pin 5 is Ground, 2 is Rx and 3 is TX and The connection is Tx to Tx, Rx to Rx and Gnd to Gnd

  • Then proceed to download the Freesat V8 Tools
  • Extract the Tools and open the folder
  • Find TCOM application and click to open the application tools as shown below

  • Set up the “Com Connection” and press “Open” and then press “UPG” as shown below

  • Set the “Project Type” to “Sonata DDR3” and Select the V8 finder software file from your PC directory by clicking the “…” button.
    Then press “Start”. The window at the bottom will appear as shown below

  • Reset or power off/on your finder and make sure you connect the charging power cord
  • After you power on the V8 finder.
    If all is well and the RS232 is communicating you will see these reports in the window  as thus: Please reset the STB!
    ÀBOOTROM …
    UPG…
    DDR Calibration Completed
  • This steps always confusing but Sometimes I found that closing the RS232 software and rebooting it and “Starting” it again worked, while pressing “Exit” and “Start” again in the software did not work.
    I was using an old XP PC.
    I also had the RS232 software crash a few times too and you may luck to work for you one time please take note and here are the error reported by log

    Please reset the STB!

  • If there’s no more error upgrading bar will be progressing from 1% to 100% as you are highly recommend to plugged in charger When it has finished the V8 Finder will boot and display the menu screen.
    The log file will end with this:                                                                                                                                                      “ second_bootloader=0x80100000
