Hi All
Have just ordered a Dragon cam and new programmer, snag is my brain like
me is getting old and is just a bit confused as to the best way to load same,
can anybody please give me some tips on the following.

1) If I just flash the can with Dragonload will I at a later date be able to add
say Predator 2.17 without any rouble.

2) Can Picbined be used to edit the dragoncam.

Thanks in advance for yuor help.

There is I believe an editor for the dragon cam. Dragonload on its own will not do anything, you need a predatr version for the cam to decrypt anything.

Dragonloader is the software you use to load the latest version of predator software onto the loader card.

You then insert the card into the cam and switch on the reciever. Enter the menu for the reciever and one cam slot should show dragonloader, select this and the cam will load the predator software from the card.

There is a patch program available, but as the new predator version come out so fast, I have never needed to use it.

Managed to load Cam and clear a number of transponders but could do with some more
help as to what encryption systems it is able to open.

When you pick up the predator software file there's normally a 'readme' file which tells you what it will unscramble.
