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.

Welcome to the forum stealthpirate

What was your previous incarnation then????

Multicrypt allows two different encryption systems to co-exist in the same receiver. The signal is sent sequentially through different conditional access modules in set-top box

I believe that the apollo is also supposed to allow manual key updates as well.

None really my good man ;), though may have tralwed to odd dudz page.... t'was a sad day when the 508 (ip, no less) and the philips D2Mac (proper one, not a convert!) was retired to the bin.... remember when pic & prom codes were everywhere... must stop... I'm filling up.

Get the basics of the multicrypt working as a inbuilt cam, what I meant is what encryption is it? via?, con? other? ...... and is there owt else to look at, say with a funcard 4,5,6,7,8,9...20 (so many now!)
Gonna have it on PC to play, 'cos sat in front of it most nights, though not much patience for feeds and and other kagool wearing pastimes ;)

Saw another thread saying it didn't work, but hey, I'll let you know.... I only bought it on a whim (was a the wholesalers picking up some stock for work, satellite trade subies.... mainly sky!), just over a ton for STB, 80cm dish (a bit pony) & LNB. just ordered a disecq motor off ebay (new 35 notes, superjack), will be nailing it to the wall over xmas.... when I scrape out some old holes ;)
