How to update
In order to update STB from System settings via a USB:
Step 1: Make sure that your USB drive matches the requirements.
Step 2: Download the required SW image file (imageupdate).
Note. Latest version of Factory SW image is accessible on manufacturer’s server: http://update.infomir.com/mag/<model>/imageupdate (<model> – number of STB model). For example, for MAG322: http://update.infomir.com/mag/322/imageupdate
Step 3: Create directory mag<model> in the root of the USB drive and write “imageupdate” file to this directory. For instance, for the MAG322 directory name: mag322.
Step 4: Connect prepared USB-drive to STB. You can use any USB connector of STB: both rear or front.
Step 5: Open Settings⇒ System settings ⇒ Software update.

- Disk – name of USB-drive;
- Path – Path to update file on the USB-drive.
Step 7: Select Verify (OK) to make sure that STB can detect “imageupdate” file.
Step 8: If the file is detected and readable successfully you’ll see Software Update window.
Step 9: In the Software Update window displays descriptions of the firmware versions: the Current version (operating in STB) and New version (available on a USB drive).
Step 10: Select subsequent operation after comparing Current and New versions:
