People out there are working on a hack for Conax, but if your not prepared to wait for the hack,and willing to pay £275 for a card (cam not included) then go for it, it does what it says it does, for a hell of a price. Defeats the whole object of Free Viewing.
thanks for the info but i need an alternative to Sky for a bar and this card is a fraction of the Sky price,do you know if there is a guarantee or upgrades for this card,also i did have a canal+ Norway genuine card which only lasted 6 months is there any way of reprogramming this card,thanks again ,jim bradley
Well there should be a guarantee for that price,ie free upgrades for a specific period.
Also be carefull who you purchase the from, there are a lot of direputable people out there,try and get some backroung info on them, a good source is newsgroups ask if anyone has dealt with the person or website in question.
As for re-activating the other card the answer is yes, it can be reactivated.
you're on shaky ground if you intend within Europe to use a pirate card for a public bar. Even the UK - which used to have very relaxed regulations on pirating foreign channels - has had to fall in line with the 28/May Eu-wide legislation.
But if you really don't mind about such things you should consider a simple goldwafer card for Mediaguard (by SECA).
The Mediaguard/Seca system is wide open. A card with programmer costs around GBP 40 and the keys+software are free on the internet. This is the same system as the much-advertised (but ludicrously expensive) SNAC cards.
No-one has apparently yet been able to get at the secured chip employed in the hack card. That's why no hack has appeared in the public domain. So no programmer/software exists to copy such a card.
Hi too old. I think the problems are that the original (dreamcards)were made on the seimans card with 3 seperate chips ie eeprom,pic,
and a microprocceser, and if you locked a card after proggin its impossible to read, hence so many killed there dreamcard tryin to read.for some reason there`s a explosion of dreamcard retailers at the moment here in uk, wondering if conax is gonna change to god knows what,Unless a dreamcard is found Unlocked we aint gonna crack it that way, I think we should find original Cracker, put matches under his finger nails, light em and squeeze his balls with a monkey wrench, until he cracks. dave.
