Hi 2 you all

After months of reading I am finally getting my technomate 1500 80cm motorised system with dragon cam (also cas 3)fitted tomorrow. I am hoping that someone could point me in the right direction in clearing the ART sports channel. Would the dragon cam do this or do i need to look into a 6in1 file for a fun card, or opos or titanium card.

Sorry if this question has already been covered.

thanks for that quick response how about other channels that have premiership footie such as TPS or C+ and also will an official art card work in a dragon cam

Official cards usually work in a Dragon cam, depending on the Predator version you are running, if it doesn't work with the latest predator it usually works with an earlier version. Is it just the ART card you are considering?

not necessarily as I know there are other channels that show footie i was just considering a back up really. My other concern is whether a dragon cam will do everything that lets say a programmed fun card would do. I know its a hobby but am looking to make the most out of it. I already see that even after 3.30 you need to edit some keys. Just like a true man all i want is mature content and footie.

Dont get too attached to free TPS - we have reports of them going secure in a month or so.

Must say I haven't heard of a problem but you can patch your internal cam and you won't need your dragon.

I dont seem to have a problem.
I was aware that the technomate can be patched but as a bit of a newbie I wanted to play around with cards and cams.
Im not aware that patching the stb would clear more that the cam. Please correct me if this is not the case.
I understand that there is a conflict if you patch the stb and have the dragon cam together?

I think patching or cam will give you the same channels. It's possible I suppose that a dragon in a patched slot may show a conflict. As you say experimenting is interesting.

Hi,
I have a dragon 4.1 with an official Dutch Canaal Digitaal card. Every now and then I lose all my dutch channels. As of last week all the dutch channels are now gone. Is it possible that the official cannal digitaal card is not compatible with the dragon cam. How could this be happening?

Canal Digitaal update the cards key monthly at the end of each month. It looks like the dragon isn't updating the cards keys.
