Hi all,

I'm new to this sat stuff so go slow on me!

I have a Topfield 5500PVR with 2 empty CI slots. I was wondering, what do I need to view certain channels, for example, CanalSat on Astra 19.2?

Thanks
Cryo

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Yeah - you have m,issed the glory days of multiple pay services being open on keys by 2-3 years. Almost all of them are secure scrambled these days - or about to go secure.

For what channels?

As only 1deg West is partly open why would somebody produce keys if the encryption is still secure, indeed how could they?

No working keys are available for CanalSat AFAIK.

DigiTV on 1 West and a handful of other single channels scattered accross multiple satellites are all that are available.

Doesnt mean anything - many key bundles still inclusde old keys from services that went secure a couple of years ago. Just because it makes their key bundles look "more important"
