Unless there is a new version that has just been released, this programmer has been around for a while now.(remember seeing it in April) According to the spec of the Multiprog2000 it's one cool programmer. Programs Goldcards in 18 seconds, Funcards in 30 seconds and doesn't need an external power supply. Must also say that it looks very well built and looks very cool. You get what you pay for and near £90 is a lot.
Forgetting the speed the VxMulti2 Lite with Vx4Fun Upgrade fitted can program all of todays cards at only £60. But you will need a external power supply.
Yes I would like one but No I'm not changing my VXmulti. Even if it's slower I'm happy.......
Seems like they have changed the case colour. Before it was a white case with a black center piece. Now it's a black case with a white center piece. Also looks smaller in size. Maybe the software has improved too.
Worked out that it's so fast you could program 1,051,200 cards in one year this includes time to change cards and load software.
Sky HD, TM6800HD, Manhattan Plaza ST550 and TM1500 CI+. 1.0m dish and 36v motor, Panasonic DVD HDD recorder and Panasonic video/DVD recorder. Sony G800 HD TV stand/surround system + Sony KDL40W2000. Infinity USB, Elvis, CAS1, CAS2.
I use the quite popular Elvis programmer which will program most cards. Ad-Teknik (the makers) have produced good software and are actively engaged in writing more for it. You can use a 9v DC power supply or a single 9volt battery. The good thing is that you can leave the battery in when the programmer is not in use as it switches out the power.
If anyone is thinking of buying the Multiprog 2000 be aware that the programmer gets its voltage from the PS2 port. I purchased one and it would not work with my IBM laptop. I tried it on another make of laptop and it did work very successfully. The laptop problem is know about. I am now using the standard Multiprog which is an Elvis. This users either a 9 volt battery or a mains adapter and works fine with my IBM laptop. Best software I've found for it is Multiprog.
