Yes you can get exactly the same with Darkman's patch, cancel your order and save £89.

There is absoloutley no advantage of having dragon cam them? Not even to patch with predator of fun 6in1?

The guy who sold me seemed petty cool from wizard satellite. Dam £89 is a lot. Tps i will get from the pactch and multivision?

Thks again rob

Right rob last question then i try get in touch to cancell........I still need a wafer fun 7 card to load the predator 3.20 files and updates right?

It it just that the darkmans patch acts Like the Dragon Loader Module. What other modules does it emulate viaaccess 1 and 2?

Lastly im also gonna try and get an opus card will that also work with 1500ci+ and the darkmans patch

Thks man

I can't tell you about cards because I've never used them, all I can say is that Darkman's patch will give everything that you can get from a Dragon cam.

Go back to Alsat and if you go to the Dragon cam section it gives you a list of all the channels that a Dragon cam and Darkmans patch will give you. Also remember that my receiver is a FTA receiver, no cards what so ever.

Nope, not on all technomate models
check on ALSAT for the models for which the files are available...

Good Luck!

hi,
the only reason why i need a dragon cam for my
1500ci+ is for the vr3 card to see the upc package
on 19 east.otherwise i think the omnicrypt card reader
reads most of other cards,and as you say the patch
does the rest.

What website is this, please? I tried Alsat.co.uk but it wants a username and password. Is there anywhere else I can look for these Darkman patches?

(I have a Technomate receiver, and I was just about to buy a Dragon CAM when I came across this...)

Thanks,
Mark

Dragon CAMS do give you something the patches dont - a legal 9 month sub to h/c channels - XPlus & InXstcy

best to have both a dragon cam and update via patches whenever they are available,that's my view anyway,i'm finding the 1500 technomate is not as well supported for patches as it was a few months ago,so if you want premium tv every day i'd go with both,disabling the patch via the technomate menu when you are using the dragon cam,and switching it back on again when you're not.

I was about to order a dragon for my TM1500CI+ but not sure now. I have a Cerebro card already & have just ordered an Art card so need an extra slot. If not the Dragon which Cam would anybody reccommend?

You obviously haven't read this thread, or you wouldn't have found it necessary to ask.
