Just getting aquainted with a new MR cam (version 1.070).
As a newby to this i thought i would look at all the FAQ's ......But i guess i am just to dumb to understand them......It does take some understanding!!
Anyway... if i may ask some questions that come into my mind...It might help answer some of my confusions.
(Oh by the way i still have a old millenium 4 programmer and 3 funcards lying about somewhere)
1. What equipment do i need to upgrade the MR cam version (And is the upgrade worth it)
2. What software do i need to upgrade the MR cam
3.What equipment do i need to upgrade to the latest files
4. What software do i need to upgrade to the latest files
5.What channels can be received without any cards
6.How do i know what channels can be received with the zip update files
7. Can i use my old millenium 4 programmer and funcards to load the updated zip files?
8. Is it all worth the effort!

Thanks to anyone who can help on these questions

hello mate,
now that you got the MR1.070 , you would need to upgrade it to version 1.081, which you can download from links on this site.
you would need to invest in a programmer inorder to do so . i find the CAS INTERFACE2 multi device USB programmer brilliant with the matrix reloaded cam and also the icecrypt cam , magic cam etc..
the programmer is very user friendly , just plug it into a USB port on your computer , install it and hey presto ! you are ready to program your MR by simply inserting it into the programmer just like inserting it into your receiver.
you can get more info on this £50 USB programmer by checking www.duolabs.com , and look for CAS INTERFACE2 programmer.

http://www.ucassupport.nl/casinterface/english/Software.htm in this link you would find the latest version of the MR 1.081.

After you have done all the purchases and the upgrades... inorder to upgrade the keys on your MR 1.081 cam for each service provider or channel you would need this site http://www.rdi-sat.com/nagra.php

As far as channels available on MR 1.081 without any card , you can get:

all the portugeese channels on Hispasat 30 west ,
Tv1000 east on sirius 5 east ,
tps , absat , and multivision , polsat etc on hotbird 13east
taquilla 1-10 on astra 19 east ( but unable to receive it for 4 weeks now)

I hope this info is helpful
regards Barry

hi, you don't have to use tit card, but then you must update your MR 1.081. try http://www.matrixcam.com/matrixreloaded.htm use Matrix Reloaded Funcard Splitter v1.0 split the HEX file to your fun cards, then try to update your MR cam with fun cards.

With MR 1.081 you already can get a lot of channels, example 13.0E TPS package. With Tit card you can get kiosks in 1 degree west or sky italia in 13E etc.. .

If you want a tit card, then you will need Infinity phoenix USB programmer.

Thanks Sandy....Still looking at all the variables to do with the MR cam..I have managed to update some of the channels over the weekend by getting hold of the readme files in the fun zips and entering the decimal codes in via the remote control. But it is still difficult to get yer head around.
Hopefully will make a decision on what to do after i have trialled it a bit longer.
