I have an imported 9800i from the US and the UK was greyed out upon setting it up.

I have upgraded to the latest UK firmware but want to know how to get to the initial country-selection screen.

Can anyone help - apologies if this has been answered before...

You should update the unit by using the PAGE and HOME button method:
- Switch off the unit with the button on the back;
- Switch on the unit with the button on the back and immediately press and hold the PAGE and HOME buttons;
- After a few seconds the "Waiting for USB upgrade screen" will appear;
- Now connect the remote to the PC and start the firmware upgrade tool.

This method (unlike the normal upgrade method) will erase all configuration data on the device!

Hi Crazyal! I have one of these units coming from the US too! Is this the only problem you have found? Did Luukske post sort it out? What did you do power-wise? Were you able to swap for a US adapter or do you have a power convertor between plug and socket?

Or can anyone else help me on this one? Thanks!
