Hi,

I have justed purchased a Tecnomate 1500CI+ and the latest dragon cam and have picture and sound problems on encrypted channels only.

I used an Infinity USB programmer along with a the Dragon Loader Card (not FUN 7 version). Note that v1.50 of the usb programmer software now handles Dragon Loader Cards...lucky me!

I see big rough pixels (squares) and the sound sometimes jams?? Is this a receiver or cam issue?

Can anybody help?

Thanks...

Yes, I have just re-aligned my dish (fix with 2 lnbs - astra + hotbird).

Do you also have a TM1500Ci+?

Hi gentlemanuk,
is your receiver patched, as I've heard of problems with other patched receivers ???? If not all I can suggest is that you try re-programming your loader card and loading the firmware again, try using the original Predator 307 and updating the keys manually, just to check it. Also if you have any other Cams or cards in your receiver try removing them.
Finally, if possible, try your Cam in a different receiver to see if it's faulty.

Thanks to all for your replies. I had the problem with both the original firmware and the update I got from the Technomate website.

Could this be due to the fact that I have loaded the keys using an infinity USB and Dragon Cam Loader ( not the FUN 7 version)??

Hi gentlemanuk,
you can load the Dragon in both ways and this should not be a problem. There is a known problem with the Dragon 4.01, and that is a build problem, where the Cam is sometimes too big for the slot and requires pushing in to get it to fit correctly, or shaving a bit of plastic off your receiver to allow the fit.
If this is not the problem, try going through the Cam menu to see if your receiver is reading the Cam correctly. If you can't try it in another receiver, contact your supplier, who will test it, and if there's a problem they will replace it.
Best wishes

hi,
why don¨t you load a Darkmans patch on your TM1500ci+.
opens everything that a dragon opens and also cabo,which the
dragon can¨t atm. read that there are a lot of the dragon 4.01
firecrypt cams that are faulty and have to be returned to the
suppliers. i¨m using a 4.01 in my TM5500 dapci
with no problems,but my TM1500ci+ has the Darkmans patch on it,
and can¨t fault it .its a lot faster channel changing and doesn¨t hang
on the channels .
