    Hi,
    Searched the forums but no joy on finding an answer! :)

    Just got myself the Ferguson Ariva 250 for use here in Ireland for freeview and Saorview.

    I also purchased the recommended USB wireless dongle but for the life of me i can't get instructions on how to set this up!!!!

    I have tried the standard settings but no dice yet! :(

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    If its like the wee Skybox F3's etc you need to install a certain firmware on the USB dongle for it to work on the box. Have you tried the satellite section of boards.ie? These Ariva boxes are more of a Irish thing because of there Saroview compatibility.

    Thanks for that, tried boards but nothing on there yet. The 250's are new enough in Ireland.
    Any idea of how I go about installing the firmware :D
