Happening now, official receivers are having firmware from the satellite to knock out the use of unofficial cards

So, in theory, when these upgrades stop for official firmware, will dreambox users and others of inbuilt softcam files, go back to normal???
Or is this the end of D+ :(
I can't get with dreambox just now....
Maybe nobody knows ..... the same as me?
Anyone? Or is everyone confused as to what exactly this will mean? :)

I should have added the fact that the nagra used by D+ was upgraded to the Nagra Aladin system two days ago.

At present its one of these things that will take time to assess (people seem to be on the case for the signals at 23 East), the solution will be long after Christmas when it comes, and will probably rely on an emulator and PC rather than a dedicated card.

I trust you advised everyone at the local that this business is hit and miss.

That pretty much leaves us with just 5E and 13E, and what's left of 19
Not much mature content left either ...... not that I watch it, ahhem

Perhaps this despair is a little premature?

TV sport romania on 5*, but you`d need 1.5m dish.
Also ntv at 42* east has some fta. :)
Sport tv on 30*w was still working when I last looked too.

Any decent search engine wil bring up a number of options

Make sure your PC is protected though, just in case

is the emulator expensive and where can i buy such a tool?
well i think the emulator works with a season interface if you have one.
and i think it is just little more expensive than a funcard

buy a dreambox with onboard hdd, then you don't need to buy cams or emulators or anything - just download add-ons and transfer to db :)
