To downgrade the software, most GT Media units do that by doing a flash.bin recovery with the older software.
Remember to save your user data, ccam and softcam.key first.

This wiki site shows the Caid types. 4b4a is not listed. There is a 4b4b listed.

Here are my notes on forced upgrade.

Owen

flash.bin recovery is done like this.

Place a copy of the unpacked software (the .bin file) on a USB stick and rename it "flash.bin"
With the USB in the unit, power on while repeat pressing "Menu" on the remote.
The unit should reload the software.

Also other users say that you must use a USB stick, not a card holder etc and that stick must be 32Gb or under.
Use the rear USB port on units that have two ports.

I have had units that will not recover.
Try using the same software as was in the unit when it crashed, not the new update software.
You must use the correct software, ie that for the V7HD for the V7HD etc, not software for any other freesat units.

Try even older software as the file for flash.bin.

Look at the LED in the USB stick. When the TV shows the message "USB Upgrade, do not turn off" you should see the LED on the USB flash as the file is loaded.
The USB LED should also flash a few times as the unit first powers on and looks at it.
Also users have said to use the rear USB port for this on V8 units.

Good luck

New information: Users are reporting that naming the file "Flash.bin" with a capital has worked where "flash.bin" has not. This is with the Nova units mostly.

I think there is no need bothering yourself to downgrade to default firmware. I am having the same issue with my new gtmedia v8 uhd.
As good and costly as the receiver is, it cant decode idman channel 11555H30000 on 45.1 deg east. Most cheaper models does it effortlessly.
Gtmedia support should better make a workaround in form of firmware update or addon available quickly.

This is too bad considering how expensive the decoder is.
I have messaged them several times yet no solution. They keep referring me here mean while there's no support for x8 or its combo here.

The issue should be looked at carefully because from other guy, he has a v8 uhd but also cannot open the encrypted biss key channel.
You can drop a WhatsApp number so i forward a recording to you or a TS record.

Please record the TS, upload to network disk and send me the link.
I will check when I get the TS data.
Thanks.

The channels are biss key encrypted.
I know this because other low budget decoders are opening it with biss key.
I am sure there is a problem with the firmware. Help me with the default firmware. Let me downgrade a d try.
hello
we are fixing this issue,after we have a solution,we will send a test firmware to you helping us test.

Best Regards.
