Hello all.

I have a Viacast Quantum MSR 1500 IRD. With onboard Na*ra..

I am new to this and need some help.

I have funcards and loaders, but I don't know if I need to extract the Boxkeys from the IRD.

In the setup menu, it tells me the Decoder ver#, and the decoder number.

Is this the IRD boxkey number, or just the Na*ra CI number.

Any help with the whole Boxkey extracting thing, I would be very gratefull.

I see alot of people asking about this, but there are no real answers.

Thanks in advance...

The IRD number will be 8 characters possibly letters and numbers, the Boxkey will be 16 characters letters and numbers.

Aside from that, I know little about it, as I've never had to do it.

If you are looking at the D+ package on 30W, it is rapidly closing its Nagra operation and converting to Aladin, will only be Cabo soon.

rolfw...... I am on the west coast of Canada, and I have a good selection of sat's to look at,, but I would love to test some Na*ra channels.

I have funcards and programmers, but I just can't figger out how to edit the hex files with Cam, IRD , time zip etc.

I have read alot of info on how to load the files onto the cards but it does not tell me what I really need to do to the hex's before I load them.

If there is a good readme on hex editing I would love to read it. One that tells me what line the cam info and the IRD info should go on.

Thanks for talkin to me.....

I have got the same receiver Viacast Quantum MSR. If anyone can point to right direction on how to dump the firmware (need that boxkey) please do post here. Receiver does have RS232 serial port (dsub-9pin) at the back.

Manual (of very little info):
