                                     3b) FW - PATCHES & ADDONS UPDATES.



The genuine fw/software is down-loadable from Technomate downloads>>  HERE & repeat the instructions below for phantompaches for extra features.
MENU SYSTEM SETTINGS IP SETTINGS & PRESS BLUE BUTTON.

Download the latest TM5402H Phantompatches <<<< HERE & the addon  file,
(May invalidate warranty/ use at your own risk/ always back up 1st !/- we do not support or condone any improper use.)

How to load a new patch

Check the receiver Software version you have, it is shown in MENU >> System Information - if it has a p after it - it's a Phantompatch- if not it should be the original Technomate (see below for updates of the original software).
With your USB flash drive (or HDD) in the TM5402HD  always back up the TM5402HD first
Click on above Phantompatches link & download the latest [or preferred] version & the Addon file (Addon_02 or newer if there is one).
un zip if needed on the PC
Insert your USB drive back in the laptop
Copy the Phantompatch & addon file to the USB pen.
Put your USB pen back in the receiver.

Press MENU ...>>> ..go down to ...>>>..  USB ...>>> & over to >>>  .. Data Transfer .. & press OK to enter the menu
look for the file ....  Phantompatch-TM5402HDCI_xx_xx_xx (xx= date etc)

ready? (scared?-  don't be afraid - don't be very afraid...  but if you brick it - it can be outside the guarantee- proceed at your own risk)

click OK on it & leave it & do not switch off & hope there's not a power cut

It will take a while showing you a progress bar & then go off & reboot the receiver.

(If you haven't loaded the Addon_02 file previously & this is the first patching you now need to repeat the above & click on the Addon-02 file if you want that too-it will load faster & reboot the same)
& that's it ...

4) USING USB HDDs & FLASH MEMORY
 
4a) USB FLASH DRIVES

For basic data save/ backup & some basic PVR use. (see high speed 10Mb/s/ 20Mb/s - 25Mb/s or much faster USB HDD rates (100Mb/s- 120Mb/s)

We have tested & recommend the following but production batch speeds may vary.
Patriot RAGE QUAD USB Flash Drives- (quoted up to 25MB/s write speeds - tm5402hd tested Read/Write = 20MB/s Write = 42MB/s Read = 38MB/s)
or
SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drives- (tm5402hd tested Read/Write = 20MB/s Write = 42MB/s Read = 38MB/s)
PLUG & PLAY - NO NEED TO FORMAT!
These are for basic data saving/ loading & limited pvr use- especially HD pvr use & you should try to make sure write & read speeds are capable of the recording you wish to do- most will record the highest bit rates SD up to 3 channels at once & single HD/3D recordings plus the TM5402 can also play back/ pause- rewind/ff live tv or stream at the same time.

Better ones can record HD at higher bit rates but for serious PVR use you should use a HDD with much higher write / read rates & for routine triple recording of high bit rate HD / 3D choose the best rated HDD/s.


Every 4Gb can store between 1 1/2 to 4 hours of SD depending on broadcast quality (the better quality - the shorter the available) & between 1/2 & 1 hr HD - some still picture flick screen channels may exceed these record time figures & a few very high broadcast HD channels reduce the end resul.

Data write & read figures vary from manufacture & within their model versions. Sandisk Cruzer Blade 16Mb are basic but capable of triple SD & single HD recording & all data transfer.

Ultra & Extreme Sandisk versions that claim 10-20Mb/s write speeds


photo strip

4b) USING USB HDDs

For PVR use.

We recommend self powered Western Digital My Passport HDDs These are rated over 56Mb/s write capable & over 70Mb/s read capable- you can find much higher & lower. (tm5402hd tested Read/Write = 20MB/s Write = 43MB/s Read = 37MB/s)


Tested here up to 1tb but may allow larger, format in the TM5402HD in seconds & are ready to use in minutes from plugging in & seem to work flawlessly on triple SD recordings - single HD/3D recordings - pause- FF-Rewind live TV / replay recordings or stream at the same time.

These may record 2 or 3 HD channels at once without fault depending on bit rates, eg. BBC HD bit rates are c. 9Mb/s but some HD channels can be as high as 23Mb/s or higher & it also depends on how much bandwidth is being used on the 2 or 3 HD channels being recorded - more colours & shades & more / faster movement will increase bandwidths over all recordings & shared bit rate TPs will alter other channels to share the high load times- low colour- shade- movement will reduce overall bandwidths used & triple HD will be easier.

4c) DOES & DON'TS FOR USB HDDs & FLASH DRIVES

Do not format USB FLASH DRIVES if they are already plug & play - they also can contain  files/ programs for use on a PC & network.

Avoid cheap usb flash drive - always try to use good quality brands & fast write speeds.
Avoid cheap unbranded usb hdd interfaces  (USB tiy SATA or USB to IDE etc.).
Avoid cheap usb hubs- we haven't tested enough brands yet.
Avoid powered hdds
Avoid using older HDDs & any that have to be specially formatted to get them to function at all or any that show poor record speeds/ intermittent performance in any way that can cause other issues later on & on other drives or the system & is not recommended from the start.

4d) TROUBLE SHOOTING (USB DRIVES)

If you have an old drive that you want to use ignoring the above warnings & it is problematic such as an old hdd or low speed / cheaper unbranded flash drive or cheaper usb to hdd interface, you can partition it in a PC & try formatting using fat32format/128, but drives that are not compatible often stay problematic in long term use & cause unrelated issues elsewhere in the receiver, especially if they have previously failed on a PC & you can lose your recordings using cheap or old devices!

6) MOTOR USAGE
TIPS- getting the most out of motorised & USALS

To check & peak weak satellites & generally motor positioning ...
Press the POS button to bring up on screen motor positioner at anytime- nudge east or west carefully one touch at a time - if the signal quality increases make a note of the direction it increased but do not save or it will swap to diseqc 1.2 (on that satellite)- instead we advise to go into motorized settings & try altering the satellite's longitude 0.1 degree in that direction at a time & check the signal until it peaks out & starts to go down & save the new temporary position at the highest signal level.
This can happen if a chimney/ tree/ noise source or street lamp etc..  is in the way at that satellite or there is oveloads from a big dish on a powerful satellite on a weak transponder.- altering USALS instead of swapping to Diseqc 1.2 keeps all satellites correct & if all satellites are out- this means the motor is off &/or the dish's bracket has bent slightly & it will tell you exactly by how much where diseqc 1.2 cannot- a small correction (on your true longitude the other way fooling the motor to move all satellites that amount the other way!) is acceptable as 1 degree at the dish is 0.07mm @ at the stub.

EG: 21.5e is very near the very powerful & highly populated 19.2e - in the UK moving away slightly can help reduce bleed over from 19.2e resulting in a higher quality reading - move too far and the result will inevitably be it will go down but at 21.6e ...to .... 21.9e you may gain an overall improvement- (this will not happen in the middle of the footprint). 7w Nilesat or 4w reception are others you may wish to experiment with but most will be fine in USALS.

7e ADDING NEW CHANNELS MANUALLY THAT DON'T SCAN IN
You may wish to add some channels manually rather than scanning or blind scanning a whole satellite as this can take longer & add unwanted channels you've previously deleted.
HERE'S ONE WAY OF ADDING A SINGLE NEW CHANNEL

on your tm5402 or TMF3/5 etc..... go to the satellite ... [eg 27.5w]

if the tp [transponder] is already in, skip to input a single channel

to add a new transponder
press menu / advance search / then green button
then input the tp frequency/ symbol rate polarization
[eg the UK PBS back haul transponder on 27.5w that can prove difficult to scan in on some software/hardware versions
frequency = 11494 polarization = v Symbol Rate = 44105]
exit & save


input a single channel
press menu / edit channels
... add channels .. 

select the tp ... 
choose a name eg film4 hd 
input the 3 pids [eg for film 4 hd]
VPID 7501
APID 7502
PPID 7501

video type HH.264
audio type HE-AAC

EXIT & SAVE

New from the factory, most satellite receivers hold a database / list of frequencies [ transponders = tp's] for each satellite at the time of manufacture or last sw version - but they don't know what's up there at any one time after that, as satellites can change / move & frequencies [tps] can change over time including the other bits of data that go with the tp [symbol rate / fec / etc]

So you do need some way of keeping them up to date - 

you can..

Some receivers can or can be made to auto update overnight [via sat or net]

or

Manually add new frequencies &/or edit old ones.

Normal Scan with the existing tp list will update channels for the stored frequencies that are still correct

Normal Scan with network search ON can update a tp list from data off the satellite just from the existing tp list, but it is not universally used, so only useful where it's used

Blind scanning - a good blind scan can do a very good job [non e2 Technomates are pretty good] & get you ahead of the listings sites like flysat kingofsat lyngsat, but some not so good blind scan receivers can take ages &/or fill a receiver with duplicates & miss loads - many receivers don't have blind scan

So how do I get all these Broadcast TV feeds on the Technomate TM5402HD

The TM5402HD can blind scan any satellite to look for feeds & you can use regular reported feed TPs off lyngsat .... but the easiest & quickest way is just to go to www.satelliweb.com where feeds are reported hourly by other enthusiasts,  look through the live DIRECT FEEDS section -

CHOOSE FEEDS YOU CAN RECEIVE WITH YOUR DISH SIZE.
NOT - crypte / enc' encrypted/ or multistream (requires a pc card or 17" rack equipment atm)
 4:2:2. FEEDS .
On most satellite receivers you cannot see 4:2:2 broadcast feeds LIVE as they are transmitted in a slightly different format however if you record them you can still view them afterwards by playing them back on a PC with appropriate software that plays .ts files and on Linux E2 receivers you can stream the transport stream out to a PC or other device & show it live.

BUG REPORTS FOR TECHNOMATE SW & PHANTOMPATCHES SUSPECTRED & CONFIRMED

******************************
12b) FAULT FINDING TIPS

Many diverse faults can be caused by using cheap/ faulty/old &/or slow USB devices just the same as having an unreliable device on a PC/Laptop can cause all sorts of apparently unrelated faults that disappear when the device is removed- see recommended USB devices.

Faults can arise from attaching to devices with electrical faults such as old sky boxes/ tvs/ vcrs / new or old smpsu's with hf-rf faults etc.. including in other rooms via coax aerial leads or av leads or shared LNB cables on twin/quad/octo lnbs/ lnb switches or using lopp through to or from a faulty receiver.

Faults can arise from errors in flashing / patching or images becoming corrupted over time.
If you see a fault or faults that are unusual you could have a corrupt image or flashing issue - typical signs are certain obvious options that stop working. 

If in doubt & for good regular housekeeping, back up all & re flash to original latest Technomate software - do a factory reset & reload the channels & test for a few days - if the fault has disappeared re flash with the latest patch.

SD/SDHC/SDXC cards
The standard (Blue labeled) line has a minimum transfer speed as defined by the Class Specification printed on the label.

For example, a Class 2 SD/SDHC card will have at least a read/write speed of 2MB/s. Class 4 SD/SDHC card will have a minimum transferspeed of 4 MB/s.

The transfer speed of the Ultra, Extreme and Extreme Pro SD/SDHC/SDXC cards are listed on the card and the packaging. Depending on when the product was manufactured, the Ultra cards speed can range from 10MB/s to 30MB/s. The Extreme and Extreme Pro cards speed can range from 20MB/s to 30MB/s. The defined transfer speed is calculated using benchmark applications and refers to maximum sequential transferspeed.

CompactFlash cards
The standard line CompactFlash cards do NOT have any defined transfer speed. These are entry level cards and will generally be slower cards suitable for low end entry level cameras.

The speed of the Ultra, Extreme, and Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards are listed on the card and the packaging.
