    Hola, tengo el solovox v6s. No puedo abrir las listas de canales previamente guardadas en .bin desde el decodificador en un pendrive.

    Cuando intento abrirla desde la aplicación DBTool me aparece lo siguiente: “The bin file is not match, please check the file or platform!

    ¿Qué puedo hacer?. Sigo los pasos que aquí indican.

      Hello Victor,

      Whether you have not selected the DVB-S2 HDSTB option?

      Thanks and Best Regards.

      Hello RS, first sorry for a delayed reply because of the coronavirus pneumonia epidemic. Is your bin file from your own V6S device? If DVB-S2 HDSTB is selected, it should be OK for opening.
