Hi, have been given advice and a link for software patches for the silvercrest sl65 the RAR file being cmg_SL65_sw_090805 and pdf instructions: SWUpdate_SL65_090805, Upload_PC2R_SL65_090805 and Upload_R2PC_SL65_090805. I presume the SWupdate (software update) is the patch? anyone know how successful this is and roughly how many channels might it unlock? Is it worth doing? what can go wrong if it doesn't?

Thanks,

markyd23:-mamster

Hi, you need a rs232 or null modem cable (both female connectors) - cost me £3 from a pc shop. Look in my previous 'help can't find hotbird' posts as there are links for the software patch, but I still don't know if these work.

Yeah looks it, as long as its a 9 pin female rs232. Believe it will work from USB (though don't rely on me) though serial to serial normally preferred.

Haven't tried this myself yet - waiting for a known to be working patch.

If it doesn't work all you do is reset the receiver - no harm done - I think!

And it's Mamsters here not guineapigs!

What's a mamster gameboy?
Do you think the SWUpdate_SL65_090805 is the correct patch? cos no forums anywhere seem to think a patch has been done yet. Or is this file just a bog standard update (as from astra1) with no nice freebies?:-mamster :-mamster :-mamster :-mamster :-mamster :-mamster Couldn't resist........

Looks like you're over run by them.

The patches are a bit thin on the ground and it's difficult to find anyone who will admit to loading one.

I have seen people claiming to have opened encrypted channels using the patches on some Comag models.

You can always download the original firmware if it doesn't work.

If it does......

Think I'll wait until one is confirmed (just a cautious view rather than a quote from her Maj) A bit like watching a boiling kettle at present but sure a patch will surface in the near future well, possibly!

I downloaded the patch 09082005 thinking its going to unlock some channels.
Well.... friends this patch doesnt open anything(its an official s/w) so dont bother.
The download itself was successfull w/o any problems.

Thanks Gandalf, doesn't seem promising at present but if he's produced patches for the sl55, then hopefully one for sl65 with appear in due course.
