A user (MrBogus) on another board is reporting that this procedure fixed his/her CAM (using a Samsung receiver)

- unplug receiver from mains
- disconnect LNB
- plug back in (leave LNB disconnected)
- receiver date resets to earlier date
- insert the MM; MM is then recognised as a Pentacrypt v1.10
- use menu option to put it in dreamload
- load Pentacrypt v1.09 (I guess 1.11 would also work)
- unplug receiver
- reconnect LNB
- plug in receiver. MM is recognised and usable.

Try it. May work for some.

Spot on, good advice, even if there is not a quick fix, it would appear that the CAM should still be reprogrammable.

There are several CAM experts/technicians around, we have one that posts on the forum occasionally and I believe that Tony Doe can also do the requisite.
