Hi everyone.

After loaded the new firmware in my STB and a couple of test...

- The spanish channels and EPG chars are OK!
- The panel bright option works now!
- New option to disable CW Checksum (Not tested at all)
- Selected option in interface has now black color (instead of white)

Before the upgrade, I made a backup of the 3 types of files it can be dump:
- DB Data
- DB data + sys
- All code

After the upgrade, my 2 DB data files can't be loaded, it shows the next message:
'File isn't match with this BOX'
So I haven't the possibility to restore my CCCam Keys nor my Channel list.
In the previous firmware version those functions worked very well.

I could downgraded to the prevoius firm version I backed up...

So... how I can follow these instructions?
GTMedia V8NOVA .bin
Please do the following steps:
1)backup the channel list. (neither DB file types can't be loaded later)
2)export the softcam.key to usb device (there is no option to export the cccam keys file individually)
3)update the firmware to box by allcode mode
4)update channel list then import softcam.key (same as 2) )

This new release, You can import DB data files from Freesat v8 super or v8 golden into this box but you can not import previous backup DB data files.
I think this firmware more bug need to fixed.

I did not backup previous V8 Nova Database. Just backup my V8 Super Database and Softcam. Updated the V8 Nova with todays file and update the UserDB and Keys from my V8 Super and everything is working great. I see the lockups are working better. Still the export softcam named as

export_softcam

But now showing new ECMs founded.

User need to take time and play for a while before posting results. Sometimes user post results within minutes of the release. Take your time , play around, go back and forward until the box set properly. Still there are bugs to be fix.

Soon the main function stopped working !!!
The PVR function for me is essential ... a shame even the new V8 does not work well the PVR Function!

Re the New "Oragne" software (10 May 2018)

CAUTION Major Fault: The LNB power is not turned off in standby mode.

DiSEqC switching:
The Nova has no option to select for DiSEqC repeat like the Golden has.

With DiSEqC 1.1 switching only, the Nova sends 3 DiSEqC commands to the switch. The Golden sends 1. (No repeat selected)
With DiSEqC 1.1 AND 1.0 selected the Nova sends TWELVE DiSEqC commands. The Golden sends 2.
This takes 4 seconds to send!!!

These responses are for both DiSEqC 1.0 and 1.1 selected:----------------------------
When you change channel it takes 4 seconds for the full channel change.
If you are changing channel in the same TP you see the new channel but do not get sound until the 12 DiSEqC commands are sent.
If you change to a new TP you see nothing four 4 seconds.

If you have your channels arranged like this:
TVNZ 2 . . .12483 h 22500 Optus D1
THREE . . . 12456 h 22500 Optus D1
TVNZ Duke 12483 H 22500 Optus D1
If you press the up channel button twice from TVNZ 1 you see this:
TVNZ Duke, no sound for 4 seconds. Hope Channel (on the same 12483 TP as THREE ) for 3 seconds, then TNVZ Duke for 3 second, no sound. It takes 9 seconds for full channel change.
If you start on TVNZ Duke and press down channel twice, the same thing happens but with HGTV from the same TP as THREE.
The Golden did a little of this, I would see just a moment of the middle channel as it switched, but in only two or three seconds total channel change time

All this is due to these 12 DiSEqC commands being sent, first for the "THREE" channel and then for the second channel.

If you select a "No Signal" channel and wait 5 seconds for the unit to decide there is no signal, it starts resending the DiSEqC commands, repeated for ever.
When you change to a OK channel, these resent commands continue for some time on the "NO Signal" channel and it takes 10 seconds for the OK channel to be selected.

These responses are for DiSEqC 1.0 ONLY selected:----------------------------
When you change channel to a new satellite, three commands are send and the channel appears quickly.
If you change channel on the same satellite, no commands are sent, even for a change from V to H polarity and the new channel appears very quickly.
This is great, all but for the 3 DiSEqC 1.1 commands being sent when only one is needed.

These responses are for DiSEqC 1.1 ONLY selected:----------------------------
For me this failed!!!
I had the unit flashing both H and V and the 22kHz was flashing on a H polarity channel selected.
V polarity would selected, but did not connect to the sat.
I ended with the Nova not sending any changes to the LNB cable.
It was locked on a setting UNTIL I unplugged the LNB cable.
This is interesting as other have said that their Nova's locked until they unplugged the LNB cable.

The Nova needs the option for DiSEqC repeat like the Golden has.
I also think The Nova is sending the DiSEqC commands three times and then doubling this if DiSEqC 1.0 is selected, making 12 commands sent. 3 for the 1.1 and 3 for the 1.0 and then send a second time.
Some older DiSEqC 1.0 switches needed the command sent twice to switch, but when this is done the DiSEqC 1.1 command is not needed to be resent.
I also wonder if the Nova is waiting for return to be sent from the DiSEqC switch, as is the format for DiSEqC 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2?
These lockups that require the LNB cable to be unplugged are odd, but I think they are related to this over sending of DiSEqC commands.

For those of you with this lock up problem, could you try scanning the satellite that locked during scan, with no switch and no DiSEqC settings to see if the Nova does not lock?

With my cascade switch network and this 4 second channel change time I can not use my Nova with the new software.
I do not recall this happening with the first software, so I will return to that for now.

The V8 Golden user data loaded with out the Terrestrial part, a good fix.

I will test further with DiSEqC 1.0 and a 4 port switch.

Thank you very much for testing.
I also test your question.
1. Standby LNB voltage output problem, we will solve in the next version
2. DiSEqC 1.0 1.1 different satellite switching programs, no signal program switching signal program, slow playback speed,
3. Tested V8 NOVA, playing speed around 5S. We corrected it based on the V8 SUPER, and the V8SUPER test was around 3S.
3. DiSEqC 1.0 and DiSEqC 1.1 are connected to each other and the picture comes out before the sound comes out.
4. When DiSEqC 1.0 and DiSEqC 1.1 are connected to each other, signal attenuation and signal instability occur.

We will solve it in the next version. . . . . .

Hi Lining.
I'm not sure if you tested the same than I did.

I mean, my test was:
1) Starting from V8 Nova with release version firmware
2) Backup the channel list from V8 Nova
3) Upgrade the V8 Nova with the 10/05/2018 firmware version
4) Restore the channel list made in step 2. Then failed with the message 'File isn't match with this BOX'

In other words, the channel list is not backed up from Super nor Golden, but from Nova.
I customized my own channel list as my STB arrived at home, and I can't restore it after the upgrade.

I think that was what Lining was saying.
You can still load old version from the Golden but only newly saved DB's from the Nova.
They must have changed something in the way the old Nova list saved to fix the problem of the Nova loading the Terrestrial part of the Golden lists.
A bit of a pain, but now the lists will swap from unit to unit.

1. Standby LNB voltage output problem, we will solve in the next version
2. DiSEqC 1.0 1.1 different satellite switching programs, no signal program switching signal program,
slow playback speed,
more correctly in English: Slow channel change speed.
3. Tested V8 NOVA, playing speed around 5S. We corrected it based on the V8 SUPER, and the V8SUPER test was around 3S.
3. DiSEqC 1.0 and DiSEqC 1.1 are connected to each other and the picture comes out before the sound comes out.
Only because the DiSEqC commands are not all sent
4. When DiSEqC 1.0 and DiSEqC 1.1 are connected to each other, signal attenuation and signal instability occur.
This is not from signal stability.

We will solve it in the next version. . . . . .


With the Nova when BOTH DiSEqC 1.0 and 1.1 are used the Nova sends too many DiSEqC commands to the switches.
These 12 commands take a long time and the channel audio is not turned on until these commands are all sent.

If you change the software to send only ONE command to the DiSEqC 1.1 switch and only ONE command to the DiSEqC 1.0 switch the channel will change 6 times faster.

The V8 Golden has a menu option to set DiSEqC repeat, "None", "Once" or "Twice".
This will fix half the problem.
The unit is still sending even the "Twice" menu option as it would be in the Golden (three commands) two times, making 6 commands sent fro DiSEqC 1.0.

I will try to make a video of this for you to see the problem.

Thank you very much for testing.
I also test your question.
1. Standby LNB voltage output problem, we will solve in the next version
2. DiSEqC 1.0 1.1 different satellite switching programs, no signal program switching signal program,
slow playback speed,
more correctly in English: Slow channel change speed.
3. Tested V8 NOVA, playing speed around 5S. We corrected it based on the V8 SUPER, and the V8SUPER test was around 3S.
3. DiSEqC 1.0 and DiSEqC 1.1 are connected to each other and the picture comes out before the sound comes out.
Only because the DiSEqC commands are not all sent
4. When DiSEqC 1.0 and DiSEqC 1.1 are connected to each other, signal attenuation and signal instability occur.
This is not from signal stability.

We will solve it in the next version. . . . . .


With the Nova when BOTH DiSEqC 1.0 and 1.1 are used the Nova sends too many DiSEqC commands to the switches.
These 12 commands take a long time and the channel audio is not turned on until these commands are all sent.

If you change the software to send only ONE command to the DiSEqC 1.1 switch and only ONE command to the DiSEqC 1.0 switch the channel will change 6 times faster.

The V8 Golden has a menu option to set DiSEqC repeat, "None", "Once" or "Twice".
This will fix half the problem.

Linning.

I bought a new V8, I'm waiting to get here in Brazil.
But, I would like to ask you some questions and suggestions, please follow:

1- Will the recording problem be solved at the next Firmware?
2. Can I use an external 500GB HDD in NTFS for FTA HD channel recordings?
3- In NTFS does it go from 3.99GB?
4- Is it possible to insert the function to change the background color of the menus? Examples: Black, Blue or Silver?
5. V8 New Play MKV movies with AC3 audio?
6 - V8 New has option in the midia player to change the audio option and movie legend in MKV when it has?

Thanks a lot!

Above I asked questions and suggestions, such as implementing the option to change the background color of the menus just to make it easier to see both TRC and LCD TV, okay?

Just suggestions, thank you.

Yes I had this too.
My Nova locked up after I deleted all the sats on the factory list.
I needed to do a flash.bin recovery.

I recommend you delete all but one and then start your own list.
