2 old 4 this. Could you expand the detail of this? I have an Echostar 3600. Are you saying that if I purchased an Irdeto cam (v1 or 2? does it matter) then all I would have to do is get a 6in1 fun card and it would behave like, say, a patched humax??
If you have any more information on this, or could point me to somewhere where I could found out more info, it would be much appreciated
2 Old thanks for your reply. A couple of more questions. Does it open all the encryptions with appropriate file (e.g. irdeto, viaccess, nagra, seca). Is there any encryption it won't decode? Also, will it open version 2 of these encryptions, or just version 1?
The reason I am interested is that I am considering purchasing a magic module, but this could be the cheaper alternative.
Has anyone tested this with the Echostar 3600? If so, does it work? Obviously don't want to waste my money if the MM would be the better route.
With my greatest respect, 2old, I do not thing this statement is fully true, specifically for the Echo AD3600 model in question. I believe, MM works pretty well with it (except for minor issues with certain channels)!
However, if markie has no need for MOSC hards, I would personally go via the bog standard Irdeto 2 route. Cleaner from the legal standpoint (from my POW) and the CI CAM is cheap (half of the MM price)!
But, markie, download this software patch quickly, as Echostar may well remove it from their site!
you may be right - I've never tried it myself (I have an Echostar dvr7000 but don't have a MM) - but I've seen lots of posts from usually reliable sources reporting problems with Echostar receivers.
The latest firmware posted at Echostar's site for my dvr7000 is now v326. If that turns out not to work with 5-in-1 on Irdeto Euro CAM, and someone needs v308 then please shout. I've saved v308 and will be happy to pass on to anyone who needs it.
Personally, I use a FreeCAM2 so don't need that patch.
It looks like I will shortly know all about it! My AD3000 decided to change home and stayed at the dealer's...
I will be getting an AD3600 instead! This will allow me to:
- form a personal opinion on EchoNav software!
- establish the truth re MM and AD3600!
- find out whether the positioner problems have been solved!
Exciting or what?
What was that Beta firmware release version for 3600 again?
