Totally disillusioned customer

Postby Hagrid01 » Tue Sep 11, 2018 1:11 pm

I have now had my GTC for 3 weeks, and still cannot get the thing to function as advertised, more bugs than a xxxxxxxx.
After many hours trawling the net, I have finally found a rom that works, I have flashed xxxxxxxxxxTV Box firmware onto the GTC

Updated to Android 7.1 it works perfectly seamlessly, a lot less bugs than the GTC is used to, so re brand to MECOOL for less stress and far better support.

I see the moderators do actually read and know what customers think, this is obvious by the editing and censorship of my posts.
If they cant be bothered to provide working firmware then they should not prevent us from helping ourselves and others.
I have asked for help on this forum a number of times and these have been ignored, but less than 2 hours after finding a solution for the atrocious coding they release they censor me.
This shows the utter contempt they have for their customers.
Answer the question WHEN CAN WE EXPECT A FIRMWARE RELEASE THAT WORKS?
If anyone requires the information they have censored please PM me

GTMedia/ Freesat can not accept the propaganda of others within his own forum. You should know that. Nobody is censoring you. We are just deleting others media brands or links. Breaking the forum rules is what usually take you to censoring or banning. So, I suggest you follow them. Only GTMedia/ Freesat in their headquarters engineering department has the ability to come up with firmware releases. When they do have a solution it will be posted in the download section. You can keep sharing or helping others with others brands solution in private messages but NOT in public. Also, Hello and Welcome!!

then if they have the capacity because they do not update something as simple as oscam,,
if a person who is not an engineer already updated it for freesat engineers it's easy

I think it's not convenient for you to update oscam and so when you take out another android box you will come with new oscam and so you will continu

FIRST A REQUEST THAT MAY GET A RESPONSE
Does anyone have a softcam key for ASTRA UK 28.2E UK
Now back to the current topic.
Please note
If you require the deleted files please request them by PM only, emails will not be answered, nor will requests for advice or instructions.
I found the files after many hours of searching the internet, and took the plunge myself to upgrade the box at my own risk, as must you.
I offer no support or advice on the upgrade.
Message to the moderators.
The reason for posting the links are actually in the posts title, in the 20+ years I have bought and sold from a large number of Chinese suppliers, I have never come across such appalling customer service. I actually bought the GTC as a sample, in the hope it was going to be my next best seller like the 5000+ DM500S I have already sold, I was ready to purchase a further 500pc, thankfully I controlled myself and only purchased the one sample. There is no way (as it sits) am I prepared to sell these to my long term customers or even new customers, it would ruin my reputation and would end up with them all been returned.
The box itself is of high quality, it is simply down to coding issues brought about I believe by copy and paste coding, why does HQ not try the firmware I have suggested and see for themselves how flawlessly the GTC can operate with the correct firmware.
Another issue I found among many others with V37 was when switching LNB from Horizontal to Vertical (13v-18v) the switch over does not occur, hence only Horizontal TPs and channels appear after a blind scan, if you use automatic scan channels on Vertical have no signal as the LNB is not switching over.
So you see the post was not about advertising any other brand, it was about doing something Freesat HQ should be doing, and that is simply getting the box to work as it is advertised to do.
An idea may be to rebrand the working firmware to freesat and release it as V38 ?

Link to flashing instructions viewtopic.php?f=60&p=26777&sid=f0f33652f8fa480cf2ccc874f630c2cc#p26777

Over the past 24 hours I have helped over 50 members upgrade their firmware, not one member has come back here and posted the results and shared with other members.

If you have upgraded to the blocked version and everything is fine please post, if you have also had problems again please post so everyone including HQ know

Someone of the supposed 50 helped could comment on the alleged update of another brand for the GTC?

I received the data but honestly, as long as I do not see any video demonstrating the advantages of putting another firmware to this box (which is very similar to the other mentioned and from which comes the different firmware, except for the power button and other extra usb ports)

I would dare to try it, but I need a convincing proof for it.

I'm trying, but I do not know how to make USB burning recognize the gtc, Hagrid01 do not put images of your gtc with this bin and it does not say how I update this bin because the USB burning does not recognize the gtc

Yes, I have the same problem. It’s seems you need enter into recovery mode or something like that to USB burning tool recognizes the GTC.

With the last update we lost the root, and problem is you need to be root to access this mode or dismantle the receiver and attach a switch to certain circuit.

So there is no easy way to enter in recovery mode. Could you Hagrid01 inform us about the this process??? I suppose there are many of us troubled with this issue

I return to ver32 which is root and pressing menu in the remote control or doing short circuit, and the box goes into Android recovery, but the program does not yet recognize the box

for USB burning tool to work, you have to short-circuit the two ends, leaving it pressed for several seconds.

Remember Hagrid01 said this: Updated to Android 7.1

This may be the first step.

Ensure you have installed device drivers contained in folder (World Cup)
Once drivers are installed device will be found.

Same as me. I tried it by usb burning tool and recovery update.zip

Both ways failed. Maybe that rom doesn't work with GTC :cry:

well ... apparently none update to this supposedly promising firmware version ... now that I have time I'm watching and from the outset I can discard the idea of putting the firmware.
this capture helped him: NO ES ANDROID 7.1 :x :x

from my optics, he's not just a charlatan. He had the bad intention of You have used a BANNED word. our teams.
I do not know what the moderators and / or administrators will say or what the decision will be taken by them, but I would take into account what happened here ...
