    Invalid image (or old version)

    Hello everybody.

    Today I decided to update my image on my DM800HD receiver.
    From explorer, I did a backup and the file saved in my desktop. The file name is FLASH.
    I forgot to do a backup (mgcamd, cccam) of my configuration files and when I tried to restore I get this error INVALID IMAGE (OR OLD VERSION).
    How can I fix it ?

    If not possible, how can I extract the file in order to see the files I need ?

    Thank you in advance

    Unfortunately, it didn't work.
    I downloaded the ssl84b and from my browser I did a flash upgrade. After that, I tried to load the saved FLASH from my computer with no luck.
    While trying to upgrade the ssl with the file sim201_ssl84b.bin showed me exactly the same error !
    Only the .nfi file I was able to load.

    How can I reboot only the loader ?

    Could you please tell me what should I do ?

    I cannot understand the differences between the first and the second stage loader.
    Does it matter what to upgrade ?

    I downloaded this file http://dreamoem.com/attachment.php?a...5&d=1323662016 .
    I unplugged the DM, pushed the power button, plugged in the DM until STOP mode.
    I uploaded the file and then tried to load the FLASH with the same error .
    I also tried without rebooting the DM, rebooting and again in STOP mode (without full reboot) , full reboot , with no luck at all .
    Is there anything I didn't do correct ?
