Xtreamer Support System

Xtreamer SideWinder 3 emergency procedure

To run the emergency procedure please download the firmware file and unzip it. Copy install.img to the root of a USB stick.  Freshly formatted (FAT32).

* Go to your SideWinder 3, turn it off by unplugging the power cord for few sec.
* Disconnect hard drive, external dongles, storage, antenna, cables - everything
* Plug the power cord back in but do not power the machine on.
* Connect your player to a TV via RCA cables
* Plug the USB stick to a USB port at the back panel.
* When the machine is OFF press the power button for about 10-12 sec (you will see that the LED light is turning on but still keep your finger pressed on the power button until the power LED is turned off).
* When the LED is off you can release your finger and let it start flash the firmware.

Do not power off the machine while the update process is taking place. BE PATIENT IT WILL TAKE LONGER TIME THAN NORMAL IN THIS UPDATE.
