I have been updating my cam using my pcmcia slot for almost a year now and everything has always worked ok. A couple of months ago i updated to neo v3.06 which was working fine until recently when the TPS keys changed. So now i am trying to update to neo V3.07 however i am unable to update the cam.

I am using the UCAS loader and a pcmcia slot in my laptop, i get an error message saying "serial id not allowed" "please re-inert the cam and try again"

any help appreciated

Did a search for the error message you mentioned and found this thread as nobody posted a solution perhaps the casII or III interace is the only solution

I thought you might say that, problemo is i don't have a cas2 or 3, is there a way i can just clear/blank/format the cam using the pcmcia?

is this a known problem with neo V3.06 on a matrix rev?

i think i might be able to use the remote to update the keys anyway, i only use it to watch TPS....

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Before spending any money on a new Cam it would be worth checking if a local dealer is willing to set the MR back to previous official firmware.

Can't recommend anyone unfortunately.

Which town are you based and how far can you travel comfortably ?
