Hi robbo2488,
if you've loaded the latest predator 307 firmware into your Dragon then you'll clear Multivision & TPS on hotbird 13E, up uintil today you would have had Canal+ Deporte 1, 2 & 3, and Golf+ on Astra 19.2E, but we have known for some time that these channels are changing. There are other channels available, on different satellites, depending what you are after.
Best wishes

Hi robbo2488,
what type of loader card do you have, does it have Fun 7 written on it? Both are loaded differently, as explained in the howto.txt file in the Predator 307 folder:
You need:
-Smartmouse compatible card programmer
-The dragonload.exe program
-Connect the card programmer to com1 or com2, make sure the programmer is in 6 MHz mode
-Execute "dragonload.exe"
-By pressing the "Settings" button, you can change from com1 to com2
-Press "Connect"
-In the file open dialog that appears, select the firmware you want to load.
-The card will now be loaded.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD
For this method, you need a FUN7 card
Using a suitable program, program the FLASH of the FUN7 card with FUN7LDR.HEX,
and program the EEPROM with predator2XX.bin. Make sure the program you use handle the large eeprom size of the fun7 card correctly!
END alternative method
Insert the programmed card into the Dragon module. Insert this into a receiver
and turn on the receiver. make sure you are tuned to an FTA channel.
Go to the Common interface menu on the receiver, and select the "Dragon Loader" module.
In the next menu, select "yes, Load module".
Now a menu appears indicating that loading is in progress. To see the actual porgress percentage,
select "refresh". There is no auto-refresh because some receivers had problems with that....
When loading is complete, a menu appears saying "Loading successful". REMOVE the loader
card from the module, and switch off and turn back on the receiver.
If your loader card is damaged there are some files available that might repair it, but we need to know which type of card you have.
Best wishes

Hi Billo,
it sounds like a problem with your loader card, but there are utilities that can repair your card. Try some of the software here:

You can find more loader repair software on the internet, or at JKF's site.

Hi Billo,
I'm happy you've got your Dragon working, I have used the files from Sat-key, without any problem, so it might have just been a faulty download or a problem that occurred when writing. Dragonmodule is the home site, but it is always several days late with any updates so you might want to add the above website to your favourites list, for future use.
Best wishes
