I have a GbSat 2CI 0 receiver (H/W: 1.10, S/W: 1.46) and MM (1.03). I've tried both PetaCrypt 1.09 and Tetra 1.0 and I notice an occasional freezing of the picture. Is this a normal digital artefact with all receivers? Does anyone know if there is a more recent version of the receiver firmware that fixes this problem or indeed whether Pentacrypt 1.10 helps?
Any input much appreciated.

What is your signal strength and quality ?
and what are you trying to recieve? what is your dish size and type of LNB ? it may also be due to poor or weak signal ?.

Just in case it's not obvious, Shaun has also posted an MM thread because of concerns about the validity of his MM. This is what Nickolai said
If I were you, I would only worry, if there were performance problems, compared to the "genuine article". Give it a go and report back your experiences.

I should perhaps clarify that the freezes are just momentary, the channels are on Hispasat (e.g. Palco), the signal strength/quality is good and my dish is 80cm. Also, I see no such problems with the FTA Hispasat channels (such as Antena 3 or GTV).

Sounds like a decryption problem Shaun, I get the same with the freecam occasionally.

I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about specific files or not, but do different files (and file combinations) work better than others for the Hispasat satellite on the GbSat receiver?
