Here you will find answers to the most popular questions:

How do I play MKV & Xvid files ?Press the F1 Key or the
PLAY key on the remote control. This will bring up the list of all the
playable files on your storage device. Then simply select the file by
highlighing it and pressing OK to start the video.
I get no picture when i switch on box ?The box may be on HDMI 1080p
setting and your TV can not handle that setting. Your TV may also show
an "out of range" message onscreen. You can cycle thru the different
settings by pressing the V Format button located near the bottom of your
remote control. Each time you press the button the display resolution
will change to the next one, eg. 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, etc.
What is the Default PIN No ?The default pin is 0000. If
this does not work then it has been changed by the owner. If you cannot
remember it then you will need to perform a factory reset, which will
return the box to the state you purchased it in, ie: it will delete all
channels and user settings, etc. Please see "How do I reset the box back
to factory settings" below.
How do I reset the box back to factory settings?To reset the box to its
factory default state do the following: With the box turned off hold the

How do I view channels in 3D ?To view a 3D channel in 3D You will need a 3D ready TV and 3D Glasses. Simply go to the channel normally and you will see 3D.
How many channels can the BM7000 Series hold ?The BM7000 Series has the memory capacity to hold at least 10,000 channels, to satisfy the most demanding customers.
What format does the USB have to be and why do I sometimes get freezing on playback or recording ?The USB must be formatted in
FAT32. There is a guide and software in the instructions section below
that explains in more detail how to format your storage device properly
for optimum performance, including how to format very large drives.
Please note: You will need a fast USB device to get good performance
from PVR and media file playback and record, especially HD channels. If
the USB device is too slow you will get picture freezing and unstable
box operation. USB Hard Drives are recommended over USB Flash drives
because Flash Drives normally are not fast enough.
How do I move through Favorite groups quickly?To change through Favorite
groups quickly you can press the << or >> buttons ( RWD or
FF ) on the remote control. Alternatively you can press the GROUP button
and select a Favorite group from the list.

radio channel. If you are in Favorites mode rather than just listing All
Channels simply press the GROUP key to select the All Satellites Group.

multi-record, it is recommended that you use a fast USB storage device

on the same transponder.... press REC again (you may get "Record Full"

third channel on the same transponder to watch.
Do you have plans to add 7 Day EPG?Yes! We proudly announced its release on April 11th 2011. It is available with the latest software.
Can I stream movies from my PC or my friend's PC to my Blade?Absolutely, yes!

You are able to connect to either a local IP address
and play from your PC or an IP address across the internet... ie: across
the internet means you can share your video library with your friend in
another town or even country; they can browse your files and play them
right across the internet. It works with the same file formats as
playing from the USB... ie: Xvid, MKV, MPG1, MPG2, TS, flv, etc., etc.
Please note: you will both need good internet speeds to do this. Please
download the Blade Stream software from this website.

options (if any) and press RED to scan.
I put the latest software on that sets the audio levels to High by default but mine haven't changed?Make sure you have reloaded
your channel file for it to take effect. The easiest way is to simply
back your channels up (MENU > UTILITIES > DOWNLOAD > RED
button 'Save NDF'), then load them back in (MENU > DOWNLOAD >
select your recently saved channel file). You will now see that all the
audio levels are set to HIGH.
When I play one of my own video files the picture is stretched. How do I make it fit the screen properly?Make sure you are using the
latest software (March 2012 or above), and while playing the video press
the WIDE button on your remote to change the aspect ratio.
How do I set up my own Videoshare?Please download our
Videoshare Instruction Manual below for full instructions. Please also
