I've noticed a matrix reloaded cam on ebay, the seller says that Matrix Rev 2.25 has been loaded onto it. Is it possible to do this? Or is it better to get a Matrix Revolutions cam instead? I have a Matrix Rev cam myself, but I wanted to get one for my sister. I don't want to buy her any old rubbish. Thanks for any advice. With my cam I was able to receive all the Cabo channels until the middle of Sept, now I can only get Fox and Foxlife on Cabo with the proper key. I'm happy enough with these 2 channels as the programmes aren't too bad, but is it possible to retrieve the others, or will I give up trying? (I did have mrv2.24 on my cam, but I updated it to 2.25 to receive Mediapark).

Thanks Channel Hopper. So do you think I should go ahead and get the Matrix Reloaded cam on Ebay and put the MRB3.00 onto it? By the way can I use my UCAS v1.3 to update the cam?

Ok now I've went and bought the Matrix reloaded cam on ebay, only £20. Anyway I have just read that the Matrix reloaded is an old cam and doesn't work with MRB3.00. It only works on D+ and crashes when trying to get other channels. Is this true? Or can I go ahead and put MRB 3.00 on it? I put it on my Matrix rev cam and everything seems to be fine, but I'm a bit worried about the Reloaded cam. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Sorry,
shouId have bought a Matrix Reborn or Revo cam. The best and latest cam is the REBORN, you can use MBR3.02, MRTV117a & MRV2.25 files!

* BTW You cannot convert a Reloaded to a Reborn!

The Matrix reloaded I bought said This cam has revolutions software MRV2.24 mediapark loaded and if I wanted to pay an extra £10 I could get Matrix Reborn software loaded onto it.

I've been doing a lot of reading up on this and a lot of people said they have success with the MRB3.00 on their Matrix Reloaded cams, but they cannot use the laptop to update once the MRB file is on the cam. I might just try to install the MRB file and if it doesn't work, then £20 isn't really that much money to lose. You learn by your mistakes.

As long as you stick to the mrb overworked version for MR and Mrv CAM's you are ok. The official ones will crash on certain channels and you will need a CAS interface afterwards. There wer two mrv Versions. One which worked for all except D+ and one which only worked for D+

Besides once you have mrb on your CAM you will not be able to go back to MR or Mrv Soft with Lappi.

Ok, when I received the cam it had mrb 3.0 modified installed. Everything has been working fine up until now. As expected the channels are switching to Nagra 2 one by one. I'm not bothered about D+ as I could never receive it anyway, so I don't know what I'm missing, but I love TV Cabo. Is there anything that is working with TV Cabo at the moment? Is there anything I can do with the above Cam I got for my Sister and my own Cam which is a Matrix Rev also with mrb 3.0 installed? I know I'll need a Cas 2 or 3 to install other software. I've been looking for keys constantly and there are Ideea and RSA keys which is double dutch to me, but nothing I could use, but I have a feeling it is more than a key change this time. I still have about 30 Cabo channels opening, but they are dwindling as the days go by. Any advice would be much appreciated, even if I need to get another Cam. Thanks guys.

At some point, when the maximum sales of newer CAM types has been achieved, sopmebody will release firmware for the Matrix CAMs that allows access to the Nagra 2 channels.

Its a waiting game, what you have is not obselete.

Thanks Channel Hopper, at least that is a bit of hope. I only hope that like before Fox and Foxlife will be left, but it is doubtful.

Thanks Kiki1968, your English is very good, don't worry. That is a great help also, I shall look out for those type of files if and when they appear. I am currently looking at the Cas 2/3 interface to modify my cams. Does anyone think this is a good offer. _http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5867812410&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1 ? I know the Cas 3 probably is the better one to get, but I think that may be more for the expert.

TVCabo N2 files or emu is currently not available. Those channels still open are in N1. Mrb 3.08 opens D+ on 30W and Astra.

The CAS2 + is the same like CAS 3 except that it can't program cards. If you just want to program CAMS, like Dragon which is supported, this cas2 + would be a choice.

If you want to stick to Matrix CAMS a normal and now older Cas 2 will do too.

The choose is yours :-)

I'm just wondering, as you guys say you can get new firmware, but it is for D+ only, if I could get another cam just for D+ and use my Matrix cams for other firmware, or vice versa what would be a good cheap cam to get? I've noticed a guy on Ebay selling a Matrix Reborn with 3.08 installed and another with 3.10 for less than £40 each, is this good? Bearing in mind all I really want at the moment is 30w, I can't see me becoming an expert in the near future, I'm lucky I've got this far, LOL. I'm assuming I can convert these cams using the Cas 2 if I get any other type of cam. Thanx :)

watch out for CAS2 or CAS3 imitations! You'll have problems with recent versions of CAS Studio! Have a look at duolabsdotcom before you buy.
