When there is already software on the Magic Module, it shows the software version in the CAM menu of your receiver, like gammacrypt0.xx or Tetracrypt. If it doesn't show that, but DREAMLOAD instead, you should read the following FAQ: Programming the Magic Module for the FIRST time

Requirements:
- Receiver with Magic Module connected to the lnb !!!
- Magic Module programmer.
- Serial cable (serial port/com port settings: 115200,8,N,1,Xon/Xoff).
- Magic Module Loader program (available in Magic Download area).
- Magic Software (available in Magic Download area).

Procedure:
- Delete the software on the Magic Module with the info found in this topic Deleting the software on the Magic Module

- Check in CAM menu if it shows DREAMLOAD. Some receivers won't show Dreamload, but even then you can continue. Exit CAM menu from receiver.

- Insert programmer into the Magic Module with contacts points on top.

- Start Magic loader program. In the display of the loader program you should see NOT CONNECTED.


- Select the com port that you are using under settings.

- Press Connect . In the display of the loader program you should now see CONNECTED.


- Press Program module.... Select the Magic software file and then OK. Now the software is downloaded into the Magic Module. You should see a status bar progressing.


When the download is finished the display of the loader program shows MODULE LOADED.


- Press Disconnect.

- Remove Magic Programmer from Magic Module.

- Remove Magic Module from receiver, reinsert the Module and insert smartcard. Or you can switch off and on the receiver and insert smartcard. If you forget to put the smartcard in while removing the Magic Module or switching off/on for three times, then you can delete the sofware on the Magic module and you can start all over again. See this topic for an explantion : Deleting the software on the Magic Module

- Check the CAM menu of your receiver. If it shows the NEW software version of the Magic Module you just loaded instead of DREAMLOAD then your Magic Module is programmed and ready to go.

That's all, enjoy the Magic
