    Hi Moe. That's because they are identical! Hah

    My friend has the MaaxTV LN4000 (I have the ZaapTVHD409). The funny thing is, everything is the same on the device but the Menu logo on the top left. The channels are the same too. I think ZaapTV just wanted to make their own competition. Either are good though as they have the exact same channels from what I've seen.

    The MaaxTV started out as a subscription version of the ZaapTV. When they ran into legal issues they dropped the subscription and made it free to air. The old ones are exactly the same. The new ones, maaxTV LN5000HD and ZaapTV HD509N, share the same service, OS and Hardware but have cosmetic differences. The new maax is some what smaller.
    I would recommend the new versions of both devices above the old ones, since they run XBCM, netflix and much more apps. It zaps much faster too.

    I am looking for the firmware file of a LN4000 receiver. Alternatively, if anyone knows how to perform a factory reset on the unit, please let me know. I am having many problems with the unit and I can't quite isolate the main reason but I suspect a corrupt firmware or a bad flashing. No wifi connectivity (no network list after scan even though i am quite sure network is operating and gives a robust signal), picture is very dark whereas menus are OK.
    If you happen to have a valid firmware, please PM me or provide the link in public for others with similar malfunctioning units.
