Multicast Stopped Working on My A540 STBs

Postby Henry.G » Sat Sep 14, 2013 1:46 pm

After I used the web forms to change TV settings on my A540 the multicast files reception stopped working. Only FTP works now. The EPD Settings look OK but the files I send to the A540 don't seem to arrive. How can I analyze this further?

If you are running a release earlier than November 2013, and using multicast file reception, then do not use the port 80 URL to make configuration changes on the A540. Use the port 88 URL instead.

For example, if you would use the following URL to make config changes: use this instead:

Also, to recover an A540 which fails multicast reception for this reason run the following procedure:

    telnet into the A540
    login as root
    Run: cp /mnt/nv/pdr.ini /PVR/pdreceiver

Then use the port 88 URL to reset your EPD multicast settings.
