Hello All, I think this forum is my last resort for seeking of help for the dead STB that I got. It is Technomate TM-Twin-OE and the problem is (what I hope) corrupted CFE. After powering up the receiver it constantly flashes "Starting". Botting sequence is going down very quickly and log from the RS232 looks like this: Code: BCM73350010 012 Shmoo Version=2.2 MEMC-00000000 RW=0000000D WW=00000047 G=00000001 R=00000006 W=00000015 MEMC-00000001 RW=0000000F WW=00000044 G=00000001 R=00000007 W=00000002 #$ 3 COPY CODE COMPARE CODE 4567 It is BCM97335 based machine so after figuring out how the booting sequence should look like I narrowed my search for corrupted CFE (or damaged CPU). There is actually software distributed by manufacture that you can use for some cfe corruption but in my case it will not work (as you can see from above section none of the hardware is actually initialized, STB stays dead). So from my understanding it can be either CPU failure or CFE corruption. Right now I'm trying to figure out where the i2c ports can be located on the main board. I actually find one place that can be what I'm after - but I'm not sure. for now I'm using LPT1 to I2c converet that is suposte to be nativly supportet by BBS3 (no drivers are required ) as I'm waiting for the USB device. I'm having trouble to connect to that board. So it might be to fact that my pins are not actual i2c pins. BBS3 is alwai in Not connected status. I'm uploading one photo with the place that I think might be the i2c signals. If necessery I can attach more detailed. Johny B. are you able to type the places where the signals can be spotted ?
