    stuck in a crash loop

    hi folks, can anyone offer some guidance please.

    My box has worked beautifully for 4 yrs and this morning lost all its channels.

    When i turned it off and on again... it tries to load the OpenVix image but crashes showing the attached.

    I have tried to reload an image from USB but it is ignoring it.

    Tried with HDD out and in and it makes no difference.

    Any ideas?crash.jpg

    Stop the bootloop with an init 4 command.

    If flashing by USB does not work, flash it by command line. Link to guide in my signature

    Thanks guys... i managed to get it reflashed by USB. I think it was the formatting of the USB stick.
    The problems are still there though.. i have 3 tuners. 2 on 28e and 1 motor.
    It has worked perfectly for 4 yrs that way.
    Now when i select ANY motorised sat channel, the box just becomes unresponsive. So i think it's either Cable, motor or tuner pulling the box down.
    I've ordered a new cable 1st as that is the cheapest.
    Anyone had this before?

    Quick update... turns out my cable was causing the issues.
    Replaced the length from the tuner to the motor and it no longer hangs.
