Has anyone managed to get Free-x-tv on Astra to work ? I read that the crack is working on No-Zap on Hotbird but not Free X on Astra.

I have a Manhattan 6800 (Don't touch one with a barge pole, buy a Humax 5400 if you have any sense) which utilises the embedded irdeto patched cam. I've programmed up a fun card with the latest BHRN files Flash and Int EEP but have not had any success. I have a fixed dish so I haven't bothered to try the crack on NO ZAP Hotbird as I can't be arsed getting on the roof for one poxy mature content channel.

I will do soon out of curiosity though. One thing I remember reading yonks ago on the manhattan board was that the OFFICIAL no zap cam only works on the Hotbird sat when installed in a Manhattan 6800. Could this be one of the reasons why it doesn't work for me?

Never had much respect for the Manhattan branded stuff since the 2500 (too fragile by far for the average user), but I can confirm the codes that are now out on some sites that Nobbly has on his list, are dual coded for ASTRA and HOTBIRD transmissions, and a good friend (one I dont shake hands with ) says they work


Holy cow, a cucumber !!!!

Spun round to hotbird 13E this afternoon, still no joy :-( found that NO ZAP appears in channel listing as Free X TV on the hotbird sat just the same as on Astra. I did have some Audio for a while but no picture.

Probably all down to owning shitty Manhattan receiver.

Was already using the latest files (nozaptv by digitalus_astra_hotbird_ok_28[1].06.2003) but a very good link nonetheless. Nobbly take note and add this one to your link list. Thanx Sab

Whilst we're on the subject, I've downloaded the file your using but had no luck. Could be receiver?
