    hi
    i got a telewest v+ from obviously a telewest area ( ive done these no probs before) to work in excw i did the net id chip put back in no probs put on stream it took update fine then about 2 mins later it rebooted and continues to reboot however just before the "boot" on the display it says for a split second "halt"
    is this because of the update to excw from smellywest?

    ive done these before no worries

    does anyone recommend taking the net id chip out reprogrogrmming it and refitting it
    any help apprieciatted

    thanks

    Did you put a dump on the chip ? or just blank it with fs, you can get rebooting problems if you cut T/B, best to use noise blocker.
    Might be worth trying another chip, are you sure soldering is sound and no tracking accross legs.
