Hi all
Probably been asked before so I'll apologise beforehand.
Approx how long will a patched receiver work before the patch needs updating.
Don't think I'm techie minded enough to try and patch a receiver myself just yet. (still a bit new to this game)
Also can anyone recommend a suitable patched receiver for a novice??
Looking forward to soaking up some more info.
I've learnt so much from you guys in such a short time.
Keep up thegood work and thanks.

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.

It is impossible to say how long a patch will last. There are too many variables involved here. Tps changes daily I understand, some weekly some monthly some not at all, some are not compromised. some may just be a key change. The age of the patch will be a clue in general but there are no guarantees in this hobby. I read that the sl35 patch works with the sl65 recently I am sure I did:-reindeer

Has to be a Technomate, easy to use, cheap, lots of support, and bloody good.
If you don't intend to use cams or cards have a look at the TM-1000D Super, but for about £30 extra go for the TM-1500CI+ Super with it's magic card reader, and cam slot.
